Gotcha Day - October 5, 2009

What an amazing day as we "officially" welcomed Michael Reid into our forever family... We appeared at the Bexar County Court in San Antonio this morning at 7:45 am... the entire process was over in an hour and we walked out of the courthouse with our adoption decree and our little family - such a gift from above! I will post more pictures soon, but for now, here is a video of our adoption journey over the last 8 months with Gotcha Day pics at the end. Sorry that the video is a little long...this is for Reid's party next weekend... but still wanted to share with all of our blogging friends. Thank you so much for the prayers, love, and support!
