I am typing through the tears right now. That video was so precious! Congratulations! She is so beautiful! I just found out I am pregnant with the 5th child and I haven't been too happy about it. I thought I was done with having kids and this baby is kind of a major WHOOPS! After watching your video and realizing you have been waiting so long for this one precious child I find my attitude changing from resentment to gratitude. Thank you for sharing and good luck!

~j. said...

Reachel, thank you for sharing this beauty. I was touched...and then moved to tears when I saw that your drive was to Redlands, which is where my husband was raised, along with his two older brothers who came into my inlaws' lives and family through adoption. Bless you.

chris+amber said...

Chrissy Jo said...

Oh my! I cried happy tears through the entire video! As an old adoption case worker who frequently worked the other side of the process it was beautiful to see your side of the story. I'll bet those five hours in the car were torture! I love her name. Congratulations!!!!!!

Ginna said...

Reachel,
New to your blog I haven't had a chance to comment yet--but the other day I read through your entire posting history and I love you like a sister. I'm so happy for your little family. What a blessing.

abby said...

such a beautiful girl! congratulations.

Miss Brandy said...

perfect. I have 4 miracles that came the same way :)

Rachel said...

Isn't it interesting how so many can feel so profoundly happy for two people they have never met? The blessing of becoming a parent is so universally understood. Tears of unadulterated joy are being shed for you all over the place!

Your video was beautiful, your baby is beautiful, you are a beautiful family.

Oh, and by the way... having such a tiny baby is so, so wonderful! You get to hang on to the baby phase a little longer.

Misty @ The DoanGang said...

She is absolutely beautiful! Congratulations!!!

I am constantly overwhelmed by the miracle of adoption. It brings me to tears over and over again to see/hear people's stories and catch a glimpse of the joy!

Such wonderful news!

Robert and Sherry Leal said...

It brings tears to my eyes to see that such a precious, helpless, little baby now has capable, loving parents who are so happy to have her! My own babies have brought me so much joy and I'm excited you get to experience it now, too. I was watching your video with my oldest sitting on my lap, remembering him when he was that small, then I caught the strong whiff of a dirty diaper. :) May you have many such "mother-full" moments!

Jules said...

If ever there was a reason to delurk, this is it. Just a perfect little girl. :) Congrats!

Kendra@PurposelyCapturingHappyMoments said...

Congrats on your new family. I was hoping all weekend this would be the news. Congrats once again!

Oh! I just cried and cried with joy for you both! Congratulations, Mama Reachel and Papa Andrew! Coco is so blessed to have you for parents. I am over the moon for you!

Kath said...

Congratulations! What a wonderful video. Coco is gorgeous. It made me relive the memorable day we met our little girl.

Macy said...

So thrilled for you. Though I've never met you, my eyes just filled with tears watching the video. Congratulations

Two Beautiful Girls Mommy said...

Oh Reachel I am so happy for you! What a sweet beautiful video - I am in tears right now. I know what it is to what so long for a baby and I am so happy that it is finally your time. What a beautiful little girl with a beautiful name to match!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Here's to the joyous beginning of sleepless nights, dozens of diapers and the end of dry clean only clothing! All wrapped up in a magnificently beautiful pink bow~

My heart is singing for you.

Julia said...

After hearing about the arrival of Coco Noelle I re-read the letter you wrote to your future child's birth mother, and I was so touched by your journey and your genuine, unselfish desire for a baby. I'm so happy for your new arrival, and hope you keep everyone updated on her milestones (and fashions) as the months and years go by.

Evan H. said...

I keep watching the video over and over. I'm so happy for you. And, can we talk about how cute she is? So cute.

Miller time said...

I just love your blog. My baby boy will be a year in December. We were able to have the privilege to go through the adoption process with him. I just think it is the most beautiful and spiritual experience. Oh I'm so jealous you have a sweet new born in your life. Its amazing how they can pause your life, just for a little awhile at least.

domestic bliss said...

PERFECT! So happy for you all!
