I finally finished Grace's adoption video! It was an amazing experience to sift through video clips I hadn't yet seen and piece together a story that I hope Grace will appreciate and cherish. She has already sat in my lap and watched the video at least six times. The first time, she was very serious and focused, and I worried about how it might affect her to "relive" Gotcha Day. But I think it has helped her remember the big change she has undergone, and I love seeing her smiles and laughter each time she views it now.
As a note, the slides with text move very quickly so you may have to just skim while reading. :) I had already set the music before I inserted transitions, and those stole time from each clip.
Thank you for allowing us to share our journey with you.
I'm a 30-something SAHM living in Birmingham, AL with my husband Scott, our tween daughter, and our two toddlers. Carter is our miracle baby, born in January 2008. Our daughter, Virginia Grace, was born in November 2008 and brought home from China to join our family in April 2010. We just brought home our newest daughter, Caroline Liyun (age 12), from China in July. We also have seven babies in Heaven who never made it into our arms. Having finished seminary right before Carter's birth, I am now enjoying motherhood and a writing/teaching/speaking ministry for women.
