Two Years Of Life In Video

It's been a whirlwind of 2 years that I wouldn't mind repeating over and over and over and over again. To say we feel blessed would be a drastic understatement as honored, humbled, and truly inspired by life is more like it. Ashton, we love you more than choo-choos and horsies and cookies combined. You're the smiles, the hugs, the tears, and the eyes we've always dreamed would grow our family. Happy birthday baby, here's the last 2 years in 10 minutes...

Happy 2nd Birthday Ashton!

Where did that time go? He changed so fast right in front of us. Hope it was a happy happy day and that the horsey cake was a hit.

We found your blog via CHI. Our adoption process is just beginning and we hope to bring home our own son next summer. This video is so inspiring and truly beautiful. Thanks for allowing us the chance to experience this process through your lense!
