Happy Gotcha Day | 3 Years

For those who don’t know – we adopted 7 children internationally.    Five are from Guatemala.   Two are from Ethiopia.   The day they come home is their official “Gotcha Day!”   The kids love celebrating their special day and have so much fun loving on one another.   It is part of their story and one more reason why I document all these special days for each of them.   January is a busy month for our family – three birthdays and one Gotcha day!   Yes, it is a super fun month around here – with lots of yummy pancakes, special dinners and wonderful desserts (all GF = gluten free).   December has two birthdays and two Gotcha Days – not to mention Christmas!   There are only four months in the entire year that we don’t have a single family celebration.  Smile  Hard to believe with 11 people in our family.   But its true. 

This sweet boy has brought so much love into our family and his smile warms the heart of everyone who meets him.   It is known throughout his school that the teachers seek him out on long days, to help their frown turn upside down!

Yes, our tree is still up.   We love sitting by it at night.  Not to mention yummy bokeh behind him!  Both shots are SOOC.

Next week we will celebrate his 8th birthday!  Time sure flies when you are being loved and having fun loving others!

Happy Gotcha Day sweet boy!  We love you forever’n ever’n always!
