Whoever Said Blood is Thicker Than Water...

obviously never adopted.

Lucy has dozens of cousins on the east coast who haven't had the chance to meet her yet. One of those cousins is Steven (8). I got an email from his mom today that said, "after watching the video of you and Lucy at your work and she took the keys, Steven started laughing and said "She got that from me." They can't wait to meet her.
How cute is THAT? We are blessed to have so many supportive family and friends -- I know there are a lot of families who are adopting/have adopted that aren't so lucky.

That is the sweetest comment, and it must have done your heart good to hear it. :) We are blessed with wonderful & supportive family, too. Such a gift!

What a wonderful observation and from an 8 year old! Like you, I'm amazed at how family and friends have embraced our daughter. What we thought would be the biggest obstacle has not been one at all. I'll bet your E. Coast family can hardly stand being the last to meet little Lucy!

I just had to watch the video again! Teary eyed, it still gets me every time... Allie started fussing when it was over and we had to watch it again. Hey, don't we have a video from Jacob on the way? Your extended family sounds wonderful Jackie.

Beautiful video. I hadn't seen that part yet. It does get better, just wait until one year goes by, something just clicks all the way (it finally did for us anyway :)
