This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

Two Years

It has been two years now since Chris passed away. It's amazing how fast time flies. I can still remember so many fun times that we had with him as a part of our family. There were so many laughs and good times throughout the years and I feel so lucky to have been able to be part of that. You could always depend on Chris for a smile and a laugh that you couldn't help but laugh along with as well since it was so contagious!
Here was Chris giving me a crazy goofy face for the camera during a family vacation to Maui. We laughed so much and had such a great time. I will always remember that vacation. We all would see something funny happen and all we had to do was look at each other and just KNEW what each other would be thinking. You could especially look at Chris and just tell that he was ready to laugh about something because he had such an expressive face and such a great sense of humor.
On a family trip out to Vegas, we gave Max the camera and let him take pictures of whatever he wanted. He was about 4 years old and took pictures of the wall, the carpet and even pictures of pictures and the tv. The funniest was this picture that he took of his daddy sleeping. Everytime I see this picture, it makes me laugh.
Chris was not only always there to make you laugh, but you always knew that you could depend on him to lend an ear to listen to you whenever you had a problem or just be there whenever you needed him for anything. He was so inspirational and even when he was sick, he was always thinking of others before himself. He even inspired people that he didn't know personally through his faith and it definitely showed with all of the people that came out to say goodbye to him during the wake. There were lines going around the building of people that came from all over to see him and to share stories of funny memories and how he inspired them.

We miss you Chris!

Plus, he could really express himself through dance!
