Gotcha Daniel


Today is Daniel's Gotcha Day. One year ago, we arrived in Daniel's home city of Nanchang and anxiously unpacked our belongings as we waited for our call that he was in the hotel. We were so excited to get our hands on him. That sentiment turned to extreme concern when we realized the condition he was in. The poor baby was so sick with bronchitis and a double ear infection. Thank God we had Motrin and antibiotics with us. I think he quickly understood that we were there to help him and to love him unconditionally.

Sweet Daniel...forever in our hearts.
