I truly feel like Micah has been part of our family since his birth. And actually, I guess he has been, even before he was born. Five years ago (yesterday), we filed our application to adopt from India. While he was still in his birth mother's tummy, God was preparing our family for him to join us!
Our application to adopt was filed September 24 and 1 year later, on the same date, we got the call for Micah's referral! Too cool! Many, many miracles happened (too many to recount here today) to make this possible. But looking back, we realize we were blessed beyond measure! At the time of Micah's referral, it seemed like a family was traveling every month to pick up their child, so we not only got to see a referral photo (below), but we got to see a current photo of him at 6 months old (above)! Those huge dark chocolate eyes, and pouty lips. Needless to say, I fell in love immidiately...and forever!
