Dennis' Adoption Video

Here is the video of our adoption of Dennis. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed making it.




I have to admit that I have been preoccupied with making this video the last three evenings. Making it has been so therapeutic for me..... I've missed Dennis' smile something fierce. I can't wait to make a montage when he gets home!

You do not know me but I have been following this journey and I thank you for sharing it. Denis is so blessed that you are his forever family. I work as a therapist and I see so much heartache each day. It is so nice to see happiness. He looks so happy with you and John. May God always protect and guide your family. My prayers and thoughts are with you as all of you continue His will as a family.
In his name,

Beautiful issue. I agree, a tissue warning would have been nice. :-) He is absolutely precious and you are such a blessed family.

6blessings said...

Okay, Christine, my brain is totally fried getting ready for this auction. I meant to say, "Beautiful video. I needed a tissue." Sorry. Excuse my lack of brain functioning. Hopefully it just made you smile.

Such a beautiful video! Beautiful boy, beautiful family! You are all an inspiration! :)

Kelly said...

Awesome!! I absolutely loved the part where John was tickling him and he starts laughing. I'll bet he has a cute laugh. Just a few more days now. I wonder what he will think about all of his brothers and sisters? He probably has not been around many big kids. He will be in heaven. Again, Congratulations on your new son!!!

jen said...

Oh geez, now I am crying. You guys are really blessed.

Nicely done. I'm counting the days with you!

Janine said...

It was so lovely to see the three of you together forging such strong family ties already. That little boy is so ready for his own mummy and daddy. Won't it be amazing when he comes home and gets to meet all his big brothers and sisters. He will just thrive surrounded by so much love. Looking forward to following your journey onwards. Thankyou so much for sharing.

I can't wait to hear the giggle that goes with his laughing face! You have touched so much more than one little boy with your journey. Though that one little boy is all that matters right now. Congratulations...I still say though that there's room for two more in that van!

Sonia said...

Dear Christine,

I just stumbled upon your blog today and was so excited because I remember seeing this video on youtube last summer. I was so touched by the video and am so happy I got to read about your adventure. Thank you for sharing it with the world. Dennis is so precious.

We adopted a little girl from Armenia in May of 2008. It is such a blessing.
