"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Happy Gotcha Day Cooper!

It's been one year since we finalized Cooper's adoption...it seems like longer than that! This is the sign I finally made. I have made posters each Gotcha Day and realized that with all of these we will celebrate over the years, I should actually make something better than poster board and permanent marker! I love how it turned out!
The boys opening a gift from Noonie and Papa Max. They loved the stuff guys!
Papa Joe and Gigi came over and took us to dinner, then we came home for cupcakes and some small gifts!
I love this one. He's acting like he knows how exciting Gotcha Day is! He and Owen informed everyone of what today was. I loved it!

Here's a little video of Owen singing Happy Gotcha Day to Cooper this morning. It was adorable. Sorry that I started singing at the end. The moment got the best of me. I am tone deaf if you've never stood next to me while I sing...watch out!

I love the end when he says I love you Momma. PRECIOUS!! I could just reach out and hug him!

How great of timing....Cooper's Gotcha Day is a great reminder of the blessings in your life! (And in mine too!) I love your little dudes! And, I loved hearing Owen sing...such a pumpkin!

I hope Cooper got all of the donuts he wanted...and more! Thanks for sharing his Gotcha Day with us!

Wow...time flies...I laugh, I think all your videos end with you having to run out to the street to get the balls!

Love the little man and the blessing he has been to all of us!

Oh Molly, I've just caught up on several days worth of posts on your blog and went through so many different emotions in these last few minutes. I was tearful watching the video of your boys on Gotcha Day - hearing that tiny I love you Mommy touched by heart. And Owen's comment "It's cooper's gotcha day? How cool is that?!" so so precious. Then I scrolled down below and caught up on the tremendous loss you guys have experienced. You've got some amazing support, so many loving people commenting here for you. We'll continue to pray. And you and know that that sweet baby girl and B are going to be 2 of the most prayed over people in the world :) Molly, your faith, hope and trust are so sweet - seriously, there is a sweet fragrance when reading your blog posts. I love that I'm getting to know you through your site! We'll continue to check in and pray...Much love, Jen Giles
