Gotcha Day!

Gotcha Day (sometimes called Gotchya Day, Adoption Day, Family Day, Adoption Anniversary Day) is a day celebrated by American families of adopted children to recognize the day they received their child. The Gotcha Day is the day that the child was placed into the family's home for adoption, in other words, the day the family Gotcha. It is the most celebrated of adoption related events.

Yesterday, September 25, 2011 was our Gotcha Day! It was 1 year ago that we arrived home with Justice!!!!!!! Over the weekend we had fun celebrating as a family with dinner and a movie. :) As part of our celebration, I also made a video recounting our adoption journey. I am not a techno wiz, in fact I couldn’t even figure out how to get music on the video (moving the files from I-tunes to the video didn’t work!) so this video is quite simple with nothing flashy. But hopefully you will enjoy entering back into our story through pictures....and there are lots of them....3 years worth! Enjoy the memories!
