This is the moment we got our new little girl. It is intensely emotional. You reach out for a child who you have spent months dreaming of and praying for. Even though you want to laugh and cry and dance and hold her close, you try to squeeze as much of the excitement and nervousness inside because as long as you have waited for this moment, it is not about you. It is about her. And like any parent, what you want most, is for her to feel safe and loved.
But, then you have your family. As you can see, our son, Jack is very moved by the whole thing :). He has a knack for bringing levity to any moment.
