Welcome to the world, Gabriel Isaiah Taylor. Our adoption profile had been active less than a week when the agency called to say your mother had chosen us as adoptive parents. Hours later, we were on a plane to the Midwest. I’ll never forget the moment she placed you in my arms, only hours old. We are forever grateful to your selfless and courageous birth mother for making our dream of having a child come true. We’ve been waiting years for this moment and now we know it was simply because we were waiting for you. We will love you forever and always our sweet angel boy. This will be, without any doubt, our merriest Christmas yet.
Thank you, dear readers, for all your support, encouragement, and prayers these past few years. It has meant the world to our little family. Wishing you peace, love, and joy this holiday season.
Katie, Simon, Gabriel, Alfred, and Wilbur
