2 Years with Nya

April 8, 2013

It is crazy to think that 2 Years ago today I loaded up my boys into the van and headed to Boston to greet their mom, new sister and become a family of 5. It seem like just yesterday we walked into that orphange and met our daughter for the first time. The past two years have been crazy, hectic, hard, frustrating and much much more. Yet they have been a blessing, and I would not trade them for the world.


My two beautiful girls!

Below there is a video of us greeting my wife and daughter at the airport. Here are some thoughts from my wife about the past two years.

2 years ago today I stepped foot onto US soil with my baby girl. We waited for her for almost 3 years. We prayed for her before she was even born. I spent 5 weeks in her beautiful birth country with her until I was given permission to bring her home. Adoption is a beautiful thing, a beautiful thing made from a sad, unnatural, tragic situation. I will never know why Nya’s bio mom gave her up. I could never fathom what this precious woman had to go thru, had to feel to have to give up her gorgeous baby girl, but I am so grateful to her for choosing life for Nya. Adoption is not easy. It’s actually quite challenging & painful. It hasn’t been easy for me nor Nya, but she is my baby girl. God has made her perfectly for our family, & we love her oh so much. No matter how hard our days are sometimes, I am still so thankful & blessed that God chose me for her to call Mumma.
