Happy Gotcha Day Sage- 3 years!

So different this year. Sage is starting to "get it" We asked "What is your Gotcha Day?" And Sage, in her oh so sweet Sagey voice said "My gotcha day is the day I got my family, my WHOLE family".

Three years have flown by in the blink of an eye. Yet I can remember every detail of that day in China, the first day I held my Sage. I am as emotional today praying over her as I was that day when I held her. We waited so long, it felt like forever. We thought it would never happen. We questioned, we cried, we wondered. And then we held her. It finally all made perfect sense. God knew all those months of waiting that our daughter was not ready for us. He wrote her story, OUR story, long before that day in China. I have not forgotten the pain of waiting, but I would do it again and again for this gift! She was so much more than we could have ever dreamed or imagined. I am so thankful for every spicy moment I have with her! Today we celebrate God growing our family in a land far away. We celebrate that Sage opened the door to bring Mavery home. We celebrate FIVE children that He has blessed us with in different ways. We feel blessed.
