Don't Wake me if I am Dreaming...

VIDEOS OF GOTCHA DAY ARE AT THE BOTTOM....SCROLL DOWN

OH, AND GRAB A BOX OF KLEENEX. DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU!!!!!



I cannot put down the words. I will once I gather my thoughts. I am so in love with my girl. I want to share these words and then I will write again later.....

" But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness. The Lord is my portion says my soul, therefore I will hope in Him. The Lord is good to those who wait for Him. To the soul who seeks Him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord" Lamentations 3:21-26

She is perfect, perfect, perfect. More beautiful than I ever imagined. I am smiling and I can't stop. Carlton is too. Actually, he
is beaming.

I don't even know what to say. I can hardly see to type. I am so thrilled for ya'll beyond words!
She is absolutely beautiful! She is actually with you!! I love the sweet smiles. You did so good Aimee to hold back and not just run and grab her! It looks as if all went pretty well. We will continue to pray for you all as you get to know one another. Again the words just aren't there to match the joy in my heart for you both.

Thank You Lord! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!

I Love You

Aimee,
SHE is beaming--so many smiles so soon. I was hoping God would wake me around 1 AM, when you said you would be getting her. Well my son woke at that time and started throwing up (not quite what I had hoped for!!). But I did spend that 3 hours thinking of you and Lily and praying for all of you. It looks like it is going wonderfully!! We are all so thrilled for you!!
Love,
Elizabeth
