May 13, 2007...

We woke up in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam. We had arrived in town the day before after traveling about 24 hours. We met our driver in the lobby at 8:00 a.m. and loaded up the van as a family of three for the last time. We ate breakfast in the van and enjoyed the beautiful, seven hour drive to the Ninh Thuan province, where our daughter was living at an orphanage. After checking into our (AWESOME) hotel, we drove to the orphanage to meet our precious little Vietnamese daughter. It was hands down one of the best days of my life. We are so blessed to have this little angel in our lives. Thank you God for this precious miracle!

Here is the video of our first meeting:

Warms my heart to see that video. I remember following your journey. Sophie Leaf is a beautiful little angel. I'm getting a little teary just thinking about the drive to Ninh Thuan and our meeting first meeting with Drew. What a glorious day it is to meet your child for the first time. Thanks for sharing this Amy.
