Finally, we have our "Gotcha Day Video" ready! I am so happy with the end result, although discouraged at the same time. Even though pictures are my thing since we're photographers, I have grown to love the video aspect as well. We purchased a video flip just before we got "the call" and we're so excited to document the many stages (meeting her for the 1st time, coming home with her, etc)... and unfortunately, that completely slipped our minds. So... there is only one small video clip in our video at the very end. Which... totally makes my day every time I see it!!! :)
So... without anymore waiting... here is our story!
I want to thank my sweet sweet friend, Brooke Turner for capturing our day so perfectly! She is a dear friend and photographer, whom I've grown so close to over the past year or so. She wasn't able to be there the day we met her for the 1st time, but our social worker did manage to grab a few shots of us holding her. But... she was there for the actual "Gotcha Day" which makes me even happier! She met us at the hospital just after we signed the final paperwork with our social worker. I am in awe of our pictures, and the emotions it brings back. We cried for hours after looking through them, and reliving every moment again. So, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your time, your energy and the personal touch you put into every image you took.
And lastly, thank you to everyone who has followed our journey! Your prayers, support, encouragement and love have meant more to us than you will ever know! I cannot express how much love we feel towards each of you. This journey has been hard, exciting, joyful, and rewarding in more ways than one. But I can honestly say, I would do this all over again to have learned the things we learned, and to hold this sweet baby girl in our arms. We love her so much and are forever grateful to everyone for your support! Enjoy!!!
Until then... Brantley, Richard and Katherine Grace
