525,600 minutes

I cannot believe it has been a year already.  Wow!  Time sure does fly.

A year ago today we walked hand in hand into a courtroom in Dallas and finalized Matthew's adoption.

What a glorious day!!

We did not need a piece of paper to know he is our son, but the formality of it all is truly breathtaking. 

Our handsome little man laid in our arms in his four-piece suit while a judge officially changed his name and forever changed our lives.

Our hearts have celebrated this day every day since.  Adoption is an amazing experience.  Its an emotional roller coaster.  It is defiantly not for the faint of heart. 

After a mini celebration in the hall of the courtroom, we traveled a small distance to experience another first.

It was that day that we also met our daughter for the first time.

What a glorious day!

Walking into the house that held both of our hearts at one time was magnificent.  Tiny and small and full of spunk our little Autumn laid in the arms of one of her NICU nurses.  She smiled at us and our hearts were full. 

It is amazing how one day can hold such precious memories.  It is amazing how one house can hold so much love.  It is amazing that here we are a year later with two angels since directly to us from above.


And here we are....525,600 minutes later!
