The Moment that Changed Everything

It's hard to believe I actually had three days with my sweet little girl. But it was all captured on tape so it MUST have actually happened. Click here to see part two of my video diary.

**HUGE thanks go to my dear friend Christine who not only didn't miss a thing but kept it together long enough to get us on camera.

Oh Jackie!

What an honor to be a mommy to children that span the globe and yet the heartache that goes with it is not to be envied. No one should have to experience the "Gotcha Day" emotion without the "Gotcha Day" rewards. Your video journal is AMAZING and beautiful and a treasure for your sweet little Lucy.

Jackie - As I sit here with tears in my eyes, I can't imagine what it's like to be in your shoes. To hold her, to realize the love you have for her, and to have to say goodbye. . .but only for only a short period of time. Remember - only for now, she will be back in your arms forever. xoxo, Tiff
