Sept 18---GOTCHA DAY!

September 18, 2006

One year ago today we became our Forever Family. It is hard to believe that we've already been parents for a whole year.....a whole absolutely wonderful year. Praises to God for all the great things He has done for us. It is common in the adoption community to celebrate "Gotcha Day" and the Everitt family did just that. Stan had the day off so he was able to be with Xan and I which is always nice. We went out for dinner, Chinese of course, and ordered the Happy Family.(hehehe) We took a family "portrait" and then watched all the videos from our trip to China. Well....the emotions were flowing as you can imagine. Such sweet memories! We got several emails from the other families that traveled with us and they were all doing well and celebrating in their homes too. September 18 will always be a very special day for us.
