FC: Our First Year With Asher "
1: July 28, 2010 This was firs day I finally got to hold you! Your dad and I had been imagining and praying for this day for a very long time. Daddy couldn't come with me on this trip because he was taking the bar exam. Grandma traveled with me to Ethiopia. You were afraid of us for the first 30 minutes and then you collapsed into my arms. I got to hold you the entire day. It was so painful to let you go at the end of the day.
2: July 29th, 2010 I walked into to your room. You were so sick. I knew something was wrong right away. We went straight to the hospital. You had a fever of 104. After a really long day we found out you had pneumonia
3: July 30, 2010 Gotcha Day | Grandma and I anxiously prepared for the court date. We were picked up in the CWA van. We got to meet your orphanage director (pic on right) & your social worker. After passing court we went straight to pick you up. I was so thankful to be able to hold you & never let you go!
