Gotcha, Kate! (10/25)

The nations will see your righteousness, and all the kinds your glory; and you will be called by a new name which the mouth of the Lord will designate. You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. It will no longer be said to you, "Forsaken," nor to your land will it any longer be said, "Desolate"; But you will be called, "My delight is in her," and your land, "Married"; for the Lord delights in you and to Him your land will be married.
Isaiah 62:2-4

October 25, 2008. The day our lives were once again forever changed. The day Miss Katherine MeiLing became a part of our family. We love you sweet girl and are so thankful that God has blessed us with YOU!

Ok, I'm crying big tears now...that was precious, thank you for sharing the video. I love how AC instinctivly gave her something to eat and she calmed down right away. What a beautiful moment!

Lexie said...

This is so precious! So, SO glad you were able to post this. AC, is just so adorable to her baby sister. Oh...I loved it!
(and yes...we GOT IT!)

I'm choking back tears! I hate hearing that terrified cry of these children as everything familiar is taken away. It's heartbreaking.

Like the other Jeanette, I love how Kate quieted down when AnnaClaire came over to give her a snack. too precious!

Thank you for sharing this.

Awww I absolutely loved that video! What a precious moment! And Miss AC was too cute in this video as well. So sweet when she gives Kate the candy :)

Amy Jo said...

Precious. Absolutely PRECIOUS! Oh, we sure could have used sweet Miss AnnaClaire at our Gotcha moment...Sara wailed and didn't stop for quite awhile. Poor girl, all we had for her were Cheerios. I have a feeling M&M's would have worked wonders. :-)

Love the part where AC gave your Mom a kiss, too! So sweet!

Glad you figured out how to post it. Thanks for working so hard on it.

Love to your fam!

That was such a wonderful video of your Gotch Moment. Kate is just a little cutie pie. That was really great to see. Thanks so much for posting that. Feel free to post more. Miss Kate has really come a long way. What a great family you are. I've really enjoyed following your journeys.

This was one of the most beautiful Gotcha Videos I have ever seen... Perhaps Anna Claire knowing what to do to calm Kate down???
Thank you for posting this and for allowing us to share in the MAGIC of your Gotcha Day moment with sweet Kate!! Please tell your Mom that Jenny from the AWAA Mother's in Waiting Swap group says hello and sends her (and the rest of the family) a great big hug!!
Love from Kinston, NC...

To sweet that Anna Claire was able to calm Kate down! Actually Kylie was a tremendous help with us for Caleb as well! Even though we were in China with you, it was priceless to see this moment!
Sorry that I missed your mom and the little ones when I was in town ~ long story. Maybe it will work out over Thanksgiving!

Catherine said...

Oh Emily! What a beautiful video. That short snippet of time captures so many emotions that all of you were experiencing. What a blessing little AnnaClaire was to Kate and she seemed to connect with her...and the candy :o) right away.

Blessings friend. Praying for you as your family moves forward as a precious family of 7!
