Mila's Adoption Video!

It's finally complete.  I'm so glad I took the time to do this. Looking back on it already brings back so many raw emotions. I can hardly believe how tiny and frail and purplish blue she was. Watching this reminds me that God was all over this one. We are so thankful for our Mila-bean! Please listen to the words of the songs as you watch the pictures....they describe our feelings and our journey perfectly!

  2. This video was so touching and a great reminder of why Mila (even though I have never met her) is one of my heroes! She has overcome so many obstacles and still has the heart melting smile! The only thing I didn't like was seeing her "airplane" arms because it is a sad reminder at how neglected she was before you guys came and rescued her! But now I can see how happy she is and what love you have for her and vice versa. You guys have such a beautiful family and are such an inspiration! God bless!

  6. Brings tears to my eyes when Mila is holding your finger - like saying "I will not let you go, I will hang on to you with all my strenght".

    So, so sad that this cruel orphan world exists...

  12. Wow, nice job!!! It's strange, I had the same allergic reaction to the video that I sometimes get when I see Mila, my eyes water up, my nose gets runny, it's even a little difficult to talk...Great work on every possible level!

  13. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful journey. Watching the way she changes from stiff and straight, and looking like she doesn't quite trust you, then as time goes on, they way she just sinks into your arms - it's amazing to watch.

    You've all worked so hard to get her where she is now, and it looks like it's really paying off.

  17. I'm so glad you took the time to do this too! I was happily following along down memory lane since I've read your blog the whole journey and I was thinking "Wow! I forgot just how tiny she was" and "I can't believe how sickly she looked and I didn't realize just how bad it was until now seeing her so healthy and growing" and I was also thinking "awesome music Sarah, air high five!" Then, that last song came on and it all hit me like a ton of bricks and I became this huge sobbing mess of emotion. There were tears of joy for your family and tears of saddness for those waiting to have their own song played. All I could do is pray to God to be with all those little lonesome hearts and for God to keep them safe in His love and if it is His will to please let them become "One Less" too.

    You are so blessed and such a blessing. May God continue to use you and your family to touch others and to be a light to bring love to these orphans as well as a testament to His miracles.
