why we celebrate on April 23

Today marks four years since we received our referral call. 

Four years!! How did that happen??? 

Four years since we got the first glimpse of our five-month-old boy dressed in stars on his red throne. He was every kind of perfect and wonderful. Grasping that picture tight, we stared at that brown face and into those almond eyes and we fell in love hard and fast. My mama heart met it's match in the baby boy born across an ocean. 

Thankfully oceans are meant to be crossed. 

There is no denying that adoption is full of loss and struggles and grief. But thankfully God brings healing in waves and love wins. It does. Our boy is proof of that. Josiah YeJoon is a joy, a light, a gift. 

We are so thankful for and smitten with our mighty little wonder. 

He's a keeper.
