Falling In Love Again: The Adoption Chronicles.

A family welcomes a little boy from China.

We have a new son in our family.

We have adopted a little boy.  There are now four children:  one girl, three boys.

This is our first adoption.

We can't be any happier than we are right now.  It has been a long road, paved with fear, uncertainty, and wondering.  In the end, it has been worth it, especially when little Trey joined our family from China.

Trey Gua is six years old, our second youngest child now.  He joins his little sister Bridget Michelle (4) and big brothers Vincent Michael (8) and 10-year-old Brighton Edward.

We started this journey over a  year ago; we had to endure background checks, physicals, home studies, and endless mounds of paperwork.  It wasn't until just three months ago when we finally heard that we had been approved.  Little Trey came shortly thereafter after doctors in China cleared him to come to America, where he then could join our new family.

The day we picked up Trey at the airport was probably one of the biggest days we'd had in a long time.  It was like celebrating your birthday, the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Eve all in one.
When we first laid eyes upon our little prince with the short, fuzzy black hair and uptilted eyes, we cried with sheer happiness; we couldn't help ourselves.  The joy was too great.

In the beginning, there were tears and nightmares (mostly on little Trey's part); however, as he got used to his new surroundings, Trey quieted down; he's since turned into a giggling, happy, easily excitable child.  Everything he sees, experiences, turns on a new sense of wonderment for him, as well as; life with Trey has turned into a neverending adventure.

It's been nothing short of fun for all of us!

Of course, when people see Trey with us, they have to stop and comment.   Trey obviously doesn't look like the rest of us.  It doesn't matter - Trey is our son, even though he wasn't born to us.  Nothing is going to sever that love we have between us. 

That's the way it should be!
