I am back again for my third post of the day with a more personal share.
Today we are celebrating this young man's 10th "Gotcha" Day! I cannot believe it has been almost 12 and a half years since he landed in my waiting arms, at less than 24 hours old. Today marks his 10th year anniversary as our son, in the legal sense of the word. But we knew from the very beginning that he was meant to be ours. At some points our adoption journey was hard and felt never ending, sometimes I wondered if it was ever going to work out the way we wanted. It was definitely a long and often worrisome two plus years. The silver lining to wading through mountains of paperwork, missed visitations and pools of tears was the time we were able to spend being a family before we were "mom" and "dad".
Each year I like to make our Timothy a special card, this is the one I created for this year.
Supply List: cardstock: Staples and Recollections; image stamp: Your Next Stamp; sentiment stamp: Lawn Fawn; patterned paper: My Mind's Eye; Copics and Copic paper for image; Memento black ink; Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher Hemptique twine; misc. button.
Thank you for visiting again today and letting me share our joy with you!
