Wow, that was so beautiful (I can barely see through the tears right now). My heart aches for you, but at the same time is so filled with joy for the family that you created. Thank you so much for sharing that with us.

That is truly beautiful and I'm just nearly sobbing right now. I can't even imagine how much your heart must ache--but at the same time I CAN imagine how much her adoptive parents' hearts are rejoicing.

They will cry when they watch this...

That was beautiful. I was in tears. I know exactly how painful that is.... you are doing better than I was if you put together that video. I couldn't even look at pictures for a long time. Believe me, she feels your love. Stay strong and know that you're in God's hand. And so is you precious baby girl.

Now, I am thinking of my baby girl (not such a baby anymore- 5 yrs). I wish I could have done that for her.... She will have such a huge appreciation for that video. Did you buy one?

I haven't watched the video but nonetheless, I've been there and I know how selfless that was and how painful it can be. You are strong, courageous and your little one will thank you one day. ((HUGS))

I'm in tears, that was beautiful ... and you are amazing. As an adopted baby myself, I can tell you this: she will always know how much you love her and will always be grateful for all you have given her. And, as a mother, I am in awe of your strength.

Thank you for sharing.

I usually don't watch videos... at least not all the way through, but I watched the whole thing. I started crying right from the start, but then really started bawling when I saw that she got to meet your precious Princess puppy! I know she's just as big a part of your life as mine are to me.
