The phone call…

Today is a day to celebrate! One year ago today at 1:15 PM (I still have it on my phone) we received a phone call that forever changed our lives. Our adoption agency called and said “we have a file we’d like for you to look at. It’s a little girl, she’s almost three, and she has a heart defect”. Y’all, I lost it! I couldn’t believe what was happening. In fact, THIS is my face when she told me…

Yes, I recorded our conversation as I did a lot during the adoption process. Many times I would get calls that I also wanted Casey to hear, but he would be at work. So I recorded them. The phone call was only about 10 minutes, but what followed were a million happy tears! I couldn’t wait to see her file and read all about my girl. It took what seemed like hours for her to email it to me. People say when you open the file to read the medical information before looking at pictures, but I immediately started searching for photos! I clicked on one, and there she was in that big ole pink jacket and little tiny smile. She was beautiful.

ClaireElayneI told myself I wouldn’t tell Casey until he got home from work, but I couldn’t wait. I emailed him the file, to which he quickly called me and said “that’s my girl”. I accomplished nothing that day because all I did was watch videos and look at pictures of her. I remember zooming in on every little finger, I wanted to memorize everything I could…

Today is a day to celebrate, because it was a year ago today that God introduced us to our daughter. Thank you Lord for blessing us!
