{so in love...}

I couldn't have imagined a more perfect day with my little boy. My heart was just pounding as we went through the gates of Hannah's Hope and then we waited just inside for a minute before Wass told us where Tucker was ... he was on the patio on a blanket with the "special mothers" and other babies. We walked up and I was able to pick him up immediately. He never cried, just stared at us. (Mama did a LOT of crying though!) He is so beautiful and perfect. He smiled at us several times and made the cutest cooing sounds. We got to feed him and then he fell asleep in my arms. He loves to suck on his hands and has the most beautiful big brown eyes. He's such a sweet and calm little boy.

I wish I had more words... we're still processing everything... but it was definitely the best day of our lives!

I saw the title and I KNEW I was gonna cry =) I can only imagine that feeling and I CAN'T WAIT! What an answer to prayer...I was praying that moment would just exceed your expectations and that he wouldn't cry but that he would just love you already and start bonding to his mama! So excited! Can't wait to see pictures someday.
