A Special Gift

When our DD Leaa and husband Jesse realized we would be traveling to Orlando to "see" Alyzabeth An for the first time, they decided to do something special for us and Alyzabeth.

Leaa asked her mother to babysit the night before we were to leave. Together, she and Jesse went to the studio and recorded what will be "our" song on what will eventually be our Forever Day video. After laying down the vocals, Jesse stayed until 4:00 in the morning doing the final mixing and recording of the Beatles song... I Will.

Leaa and Jesse hosted a family celebration on our return from Orlando. Champagne toasts, hugs, smiles and kisses greeted us. And their song celebrating the addition of Alyzabeth to our family...
How do you fully say thank you for something given from the heart of another?
Like our love for Alyzabeth, we are blessed and humbled to love and have the love of all our children. Forever and ever.

Please join us in listening to and enjoying the Beatles tune, I Will, as performed by our DD Leaa & SIL Jesse.
peace

That is one of my favorite songs that I also considered for our travel video. This is just beautiful, beautiful - a sweet voice, lovely arrangements and mixing. What an amazing treasure for Alyzabeth, her mom and dad.

Great job Leaa and Jesse, thanks for sharing.

She is so perfect, I can't wait to meet her. Remember, whenever you two get tired I am only a couple of miles away, and would be honored to babysit. Congratulations!!!

I have a bag full of Waiting Families items for you to go through and see if you want to take with you if you are interested. Enjoy cloud 9!! The view from there is quite magnificent! We've had Aaron 7 months yesterday and we're still up there!

Lots of FCC love,

I am late in catching up with all the new referrals, but wanted to say *Congratz*! She is darling, wow, extremely darling. So very precious. We also have a spicy Chongqing gal, don't let her looks of total sweetness fool you. :) Ours did, and once we were home the sweet magnified ... and so did the spicy. Makes for a fun and interesting life. Couldn't be better!

P.S. Oh, and we are an 'older' couple too! :)

OMG!! That is exactly the song I sang to Emilee when they put her in my arms!(Of course, my voice is not nearly as beautiful as your daughter's. Emilee wailed when she heard me!) I had been listening to Allison Krause's version nonstop the 6 months (!) it took to get travel approval. So we consider this "our" song, too. But it's so special that you have your very own version!!!!

Hugs,
