Take The Journey Of A Lifetime....

....in just a few short minutes. I have made a special video showing our journey through China, Kaiya's Gotcha Day and our first month as a family. I felt like so many of you were with us the whole way through. Thank you for being a part of our lives. I hope you enjoy it. :0) Angel

Okay, it's official...the Kaiya "jig" is the cutest thing EVER!! She's brilliant...you just have to teach her to CLOSE her mouth when she smooches you... ha ha ha! This is a wonderful and moving tribute to the journey to Kaiya! Thanks for sharing!
By the way... who DID have to clean up after that yogurt bath she gave herself? I think I remember a debate between Mommy and Daddy over whose turn it was.
Hmmmm.
love,
Holly

Waaaahhh.....of course a happy wah! I am so happy for your family and Miss. Kaiya! I LOVE the music - but my favourite part was Kaiya COVERED in her yogurt! So cute.

Really happy for your family - and thank you for giving all of us something to look forward to - when we eventually bring our little one's home!

Thanks so much for sharing!

Angel,
Amazing video---in tears over here, and I am emotional enough lately! Kaiya is so adorably happy and you could see a transition with her---that was wonderful!

My favorite though was the ending when you were all piled up on the sofa with DH on the bottom exhausted---that was great =)---gorgeous family, too.

And just a warning---Zoe is too die for---and looked like a swimsuit model already in the kiddie pool! So you will have to bolt all your doors very soon---they will be knocking your door down for her!
Enjoy it all,
Erin

Oh my goodness this was so good!!! I thought to myself that I am going to make it through this video without crying, BUT when she reach in to kiss you, I lost the battle.

She is precious and you are so blessed!!!
