Introducing our daughter, Claire Elizabeth Adkins

Today was an AMAZING day, full of wonder, joy, and tears. We will tell you all about it... there are so many stories to tell, but for now, we are going to bed. We are beyond exhausted. It's almost 11:00 here local time and Claire is still wide awake and we just haven't had much time to be around the computer. I intend to have a video online for you all to see tomorrow morning sometime (hopefully by Saturday night Eastern time) and we'll try to update the blog with the full story by then too.

Good night!

Congratulations! We are waiting to adopt our son who is 8 and at Jonah House. Your daughter is beautiful (and so are you!) I am so happy for you and your family. I know she will be a blessing to you. We have 3 children adopted from China as well as 3 birth children and 1 foster child. Safe travels!

Sitting here loving this! Jessica, Grandaddy says 'hold it in the road and bring his great grandaughter on home!' Also, he loves and misses you. I could tell he was touched by the picture of the 4 of you together. Jessica, Greg, Connor & Claire-Aunt Denise loves you all and will be as patient as need be to meet my new niece! Like I said earlier, all of you kiss one another, from me!

Congratulations! I know it's been a long road to Claire, but what an awesome God we serve who unites families through adoption. Claire is just beautiful. We'll continue to pray for the four of you that the bonding will go well over the next several days. Thanks for sharing your journey! Can't wait til it's us!
The Cook family,
Jeff, Ginger, Caleb & Emma Grace
