Happy Gotcha Day!

September 2008

September 22nd, 2008 is a day that changed our lives forever. On that day, 8000 miles away in Binh Duong Vietnam we added beautiful, tiny, 18 month old An Thuy Le to our family. The details of that day are burned into our mind and we remember it like it was yesterday. Emma has changed so much in the past two years, going from a shy, curious, cautious little thing, to an outgoing, friendly, smart as a whip normal American 3 year old. She has developed quite a sense of humor the past two years as well. We thank God for Emma, Austin, Abby, Kelly, and Candice everyday. They each bring joy to our life in their own unique ways. We are truly blessed by the Lord!

Below is the video of the first time we ever saw her.

That is a date we will never forget. That night, while on the phone I was checking email, and we got the message we had been waiting on, approval of our I-600 which cleared us to go to Vietnam. The next day we had our schedule, and hotel plane reservations. We left OKC 9 days later for the journey of a lifetime. Here are a couple of new pictures from the start of football season.
