Last But Not Least!

This marks our half year mark since we've been a family of 3! I can hardly believe it! This will also be our final post on our adoption blog! What a journey it's been! However, we are loving and cherishing this side of the process more than we ever thought possible! Thank you to all of you who have followed our journey and given us encouraging words and prayers along the way. You have been/are such a blessing. I still find it amazing how this "blog" opened up such great opportunities to meet so many families experiencing the same miracles! I feel so priviledged to have "met" you! I feel like I've known you for years even though we truly haven't met! We would love for you to follow along with our family journey at our new site Meet The Kochersperger's (James came up with this title! I thought it was kind of cute so we're going with it!)

As a fun way to end this journey, we thought we would share with you our adoption video. We made this to use in our adoption presentation I gave at our local Right To Life prayer service. If I can brag just a little, I think it turned out really neat! Many, many thank you's to my dad who helped me with it and spent many hours on it! Thank you Dad! I hope you all enjoy it (it took 3 hours to download, BIG file)!




If you are finding our blog for the first time, please feel free to look back in the archives. We started our process in January 2008. Our trip to pick up our son occured in the months of July-September of 2009. Blogs are a great resource and we hope ours will help you on your journey!

God Bless!

What a beautiful, beautiful video, and what a perfect way to end this blog. Thank you so much for sharing your very special journey with us. We are looking forward to following along with you all on your further adventures with your new blog (and in person, of course). Great new blog title, by the way!

The video is beautiful. I had to watch it twice. Thank you for providing your blog as a resource. When we started our adoption process and I found out how few children are adopted from Poland, it felt a little lonely. Thanks to the internet, it does not feel so lonely anymore. Thank you for all the advice and encouragement. I would love to keep following your story, if you don't mind!

What a beautiful video, Melanie. And congratulations on hitting the 6 months mark as a family! The time goes so quickly. We'll be following along as you move to a new blog. :)

There is so much to say after reading your post and watching the video. First, the video was GORGEOUS! What a wonderful keepsake that you made for your family (the christmas ornament and eating the birthday cake were my favorite parts by far) . BJ will love it when he is older. These 6 months have definitley gone by fast, haven't they? The year/s will go by fast too. We have been home 19 months and it still seems like yesterday. Can't wait for the new blog to see how BJ continues to blossom.

Hello, James and Melanie. We are just beginning our adoption process from Poland and someone from SMIA suggested we talk to you about your experience. Your blog has been informative and BJ is so sweet! If you are willing we would love to hear from you via email at adamsfam42@yahoo.com. Thank you for putting your experience in a blog, it's so great to hear those personal experiences as we begin ours.
