Welcome Home

April 12, 2011 was a special day. A very special day.
It was the day that G and L welcomed their sweet baby T home. T’s long journey from South Korea concluded here.

I had goosebumps when I laid eyes upon Dulles Airport. Something magical was about to happen…

Excitement was definitely in the air. This was no ordinary Tuesday afternoon. This was the culmination of a long journey to parenthood.

The waiting was nerve-wracking!

And, just like that, there he was (along with his little travel buddy, who was also joining her new family on that beautiful afternoon).

And all those nerves turned into smiles, laughter, and tears of joy.

Congratulations, G and L. Your little boy is amazing. And, T, you are a lucky little guy to have such incredible, loving parents!
I am so happy for all three of you. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day.
