Getting SaRang Video


This is Brian again. It is 3:55 a.m. in South Korea. I've been up since about 2:30 a.m. SaRang is sleeping well. I couldn't sleep knowing I had this video to get done for all of you back in the States. So the only music that seems to fit the videos so far are Steven Curtis Chapman songs. If you needed a box of tissues for any of the other videos, then you might want to go get a roll of paper towels for this one. I've watched it over and over, and I'm crying even as I type about it. What an emotional moment this was/is in our lives!

I have been so amazed and touched by your videos that I (hope you don't mind) I posted them on my blog. You have captured the experience and emotions so perfectly that I wanted to share with my family and friends and say, "THIS is what it was like!"
I pray things go smoothly as Rory gets used to you and that you will have a safe trip home tomorrow. Thank you SO Much for sharing your journey with us!

It's such a bittersweet time for your family, and especially for your new daughter. I'm praying for your family and for her foster family during this time of transition.

She is absolutely beautiful. What a touching video. I know that had to be heart wrenching to watch their goodbye, but it just means that she took very good care of your little girl for you.

God has blessed you because you two deserve it. Enjoy your little girl.

It's me again. I made the mistake of not grabbing a tissue before I watched this. I hope nobody else is going to make that mistake! LOL

She is absolutely precious. I just had to say that again.
I hope you guys have a safe flight back home.

Congratulations! Oh I needed two or three rolls of paper towels. Thank you for sharing. I would have never thought of taking video of the walk to pick her up -I will have to remember that! We are still working on homestudy paperwork,but seeing this has made me so anxious and excited! Thanks!

Thank you so much for sharing your lives with us! It brought back the memories of both my trips to Korea; a wonderful day, but such a hard one for the Foster mom!! I have loved all your posts, and videos! (what a wonderful keepsake!!! I didn't bring a video camera, and after watching your videos, I sure wish I would have!)
Praying for the transition for all of you!

A bunch of us crying around the computer here! It so evident how much the foster mothers love our children, isn't it? What selfless hearts they have! It was also heart warming to see SaRang giggling with you a few minutes later. Her laugh is contagious!

btw, who is the little boy, a foster child? He reminds me quite a bit of my Max who came home at age 3 and was a big helper with the little ones in his foster families home.
