Happy Gotcha Day Zachary Carlos Morrison!

On this day six years ago, Mommy and Daddy landed in Guatemala City with such a sense of 'What if'!  We got to the hotel (Praise God...if you've ever ridden in a taxi in a foreign country-you know why) and had no idea what to do or what to expect.  We finally got the call that you were there...papers and all!
This is what we found:

It was like you had been with us all along.  You cried for about an hour and then you were done.  You were ours and I think you knew it.

And oh the joy you've brought to us and everyone around you these last six years.  You are a blessing from God and we are so proud that you know Jesus is your Savior and He lives in your heart.  We will cherish every moment that we have with you and we know that He has special plans for our sweet baby boy!

I love you child of my heart!

'Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.'
Psalm 127:4
