    i am literally CRYING my eyes out.
    this video is amazing....and when they handed YOUR DAUGHTER to heart melted...
    I know that I didn't have as many issues and my road wasn't nearly as long, but, I really felt your relief as they put Kaiyin in your arms.
    And the joy surrounded your home...I am speechless...
    I wish you so much love...what a lucky little girl...and worth the wait,I am sure.

  6. AMAZING!! I'm with Sara...tears started welling up in my eyes when they walked your precious gift out to you and Steve and placed her in your arms. What a trip?!! Thank you for sharing a little piece of it with us. I can't wait to meet her and teach you guys some massage for her. Congratulations to your wonderful family!!

  8. Oh, Emira and Steve,
    This video stands apart. It was an intimate invitation into your heart and family. I wept as you drew her into your arms at the first meeting--to see that!--what an honor!--got to see that bottle, and then the little cheek squeezies with Daddy's precious love--oh, my!! Thank you, thank you, dear Lord.
    May God bless Kaiyin with His loving Presence and Glory all the days of her life. Love, Gillian
