|Just moments before we met Lucy for the first time.|
I am not sure if others viewing this have the same reaction as me, and maybe it will sound a bit odd, but watching this breaks my heart. Our little girl is scared to death. The only way that I can try to understand how Lucy must have been feeling is to think about what it would be like if I was abducted by aliens. And I don't say this in jest. We were nothing of what our girl had known up to that point in her 11 months of life. We looked and sounded different. The entire scene (as you could probably sense and hear) was chaotic. Here we were in our hotel lobby, other crying babies surrounding us, all kinds of things being handed to us, our guide directing us in what we needed to do next... And all that was probably going through little Lucy's head and heart was: where is my world? what is happening? who are these strange people? At one point in the video you can see Lucy looking at Brian, and it is evident this is what she is thinking/feeling.
|Hello, sweet girl....|
|Asleep at last... Lucy's first night with us.|
Happy Forever Family Day to you, sweet Lucy.
