I am a day late in posting this, but it has been one year since we received a call and learned about our precious Lucy Eyerusalem and Jude Uchala. The call came on July 13th, but due to a computer glitch at our agency we had to wait 24 hours and finally on July 14th, 2011 we saw their faces. That call made me a mommy. I will never forget the feeling and rush of emotions as we opened the email to see their photos.
This was the first photo we saw.
Followed by these individual ones.
By this time tears were streaming uncontrollably, those are my babies on the other side of the world. God had chosen us to be their parents. I was in love immediately, but my heart was breaking being so far from them. Their faces were so scared and sad and there was nothing I could do to comfort them.
I was happy to see one picture with a smile.
One year later and a recent move (10 days ago) to Los Angeles, here they are today.
