I can't believe that it's been one year since Danilo's Embassy appointment!
Time has went by so quickly and Danilo has grown up so fast.
I remember anxiously and impatiently waiting for each and every step of the adoption process to be complete.
Time ticked by so slowly with so much uncertainty.
I can remember not wanting to paint and prepare his room until I was certain all cases would be grandfathered in under the old adoption laws.
I couldn't even get excited until I was in Guatemala waiting in the hotel lobby for Danilo. Once I saw Danilo I could finally breathe.
I made this video for Danilo in celebration of his homecoming...so many people tell me he is a lucky little boy, but I feel I'm the lucky one to have him for my son!
