Special Video

I was sitting here browsing Facebook when a friend asked for my email address to send me a special video. She’s a good friend so I said sure here it is. Then I opened my email and this is what I saw.

Then this…

and finally this…

My friend didn’t tell me what the video’s were of but as soon as I started to watch tears started streaming down my cheeks. Katie said why are you crying and I told her I’d show her in a minute. I just wanted to take it all in. These videos are of my sweet Gabie’s heart now beating very strongly for Jack Tanner a healthy growing little 3 year old in California.

When I showed the kids Katie said “and that made you cry, you must be emotional” I kind of looked at her funny then said “yes that made me cry, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen my sons heart beating”. I know it’s such a small thing but honestly it’s huge to me. I really couldn’t be happier than I am right now to have seen such a simple little video. How very blessed my family is to be included in Jack and his families life and to be able to build a relationship with them. I always miss my baby but I’m always grateful that he gave us this huge opportunity to meet Jack’s family and grow to love them more and more everyday.

  1. Watching the vidios, it makes my heart ach, and yes I was close to tears. Some day Katie will understand and it will make her cry as well. We miss our Gabriel so much but are so graitful that he could help some other little boy live. I love seeing the pictures of Jake on Face Book. somehow it helps with missing Gabie so much, at least it does for me. Love you Daughter. You are one of my heros.
