One Less Orphan: Mia's gotcha day

When will my life begin?

It is the morning of "Gotcha Day" and this was the perfect comment to read when I woke up this morning in anticipation for this big day today!!!

"I have been following your blog since you started and I am so very excited that Mia will not have to wonder anymore,
"When will my life begin."
'And I'll keep wonderin' and wonderin'
And wonderin' and wonderin'
When will my life begin?

And tomorrow night,
Lights will appear
Just like they do on my birthday each year.

What is it like Out there where they glow?'
I watched 'Tangled' tonight with my son and all I could think of was Mia during all the songs and I cried and cried knowing that she is finally going to be RIGHT where she belongs and that her life is about to begin! If I had a lantern I would definitely set one off tomorrow as she walks out of that orphanage with her Mommy and Papa!!!"

Your life begins today baby girl......TODAY!!!!!!

  3. I am so happy that little Mia will finally be going HOME and you guys will be heading back to your other 3 beautiful young ladies. You have sacrificed so much and I can't even imagine how much you miss your girls and they miss you. So worth it though for GOTCHA DAY for Mia...crying tears of happiness from across the world in Montana :)

  4. Imagine lanterns all over the States in celebration of Mia's freedom and the start of her new life. I know we'd send one up, with love and thoughts of gratitude. I can't wait to hear about everything that's waiting for her on the other side of the gate!

    p.s. We get to meet Sarah Archer this afternoon :). What an exciting day!
