One year ago today....

Austin and Logan were born into our hearts. We received the call at 4:45pm on a Friday afternoon. We saw their picture, this picture about an hour later. And in that one moment, our hearts swelled with unimaginable pride and love for these two little angels half way across the world.

Thus, we began our journey. Our heart's journey.

A journey of love, of joy, of patience, and at times a journey of fight. It's been a journey of Faith and of perseverance. And a journey of unimaginable heartbreak - of missed milestones, of "firsts" that were reached without us, of too many good-byes.

If we knew then, what we know now, would we have done it?
Yes!

Yes!

Yes!!!

How long is too long to wait for them? Until we don't have to wait anymore. Until they are in our arms forever. And a new journey begins...

A journey of love, of joy, of patience, and at times a journey of fight. It will be a journey of Faith and of perseverance. And a journey of unimageable heartbreak, I'm sure!

We are so grateful. We are so blessed.

365 down, 12 more to go!!!
