My sister and brother-in-law embarked on a journey of adoption two and a half years ago. Mountains on paperwork later, they were finally approved, and then matched with baby S in the Fall of 2012. For the next 14 months it was a roller coaster of emotion, more paperwork, international flights, monthly newletters, a tearfully-missed first birthday, more paperwork, … and finally…. Merry Christmas 2013 “you can come get your son.” My sister and BIL left the US on the last day of 2103 childless, and returned a week later with their beautiful powerhouse of a son.

Our family rejoiced!
