One Year + 2 Days Ago...

Oops...running a tad behind...
On June 9, 2011, this is the first time we saw Gavin's sweet face. We could not wait to bring this sweet baby home. He was always on our mind.

This is the first picture we received of Gavin with his foster mother. We could tell just from this picture how much he was loved. Gavin's referral day will always be a day where we think about his very special foster family.

This is just one picture from his 1st birthday. This is one of my favorites. You may be wondering why since Gavin is so serious. because of the pure love that his foster mother has on her face for him. It makes my heart ache. 

This is a picture of his foster mother, father, and brother. I know he still misses them all especially his foster brother.

In this picture his foster grandmother and grandfather are also pictured. He also had a foster uncle and aunt who we know he loved very much.

We know that without the love and care from this beautiful family Gavin would not be who he is today. I've often wondered what is going through the foster family's mind as they are waiting until their foster child gets their travel call. It brings tears to my eyes thinking how they could unselfishly love him for a whole year and be strong enough to say goodbye to him. We love his foster family very much and they will always be considered part of our family. We can't wait until we see them again!
