It was the day before we were to travel to bring our son home. The day before our journey thus far would be completed. The day before our lives would change forever.
My son Nate said, “Mom, I am excited about so many things about bringing Cedi¬†home, but do you know what I am the most excited about? Cedi will never be an orphan again.”

So many details about our journey to share, but that was a beautiful beginning. My son said it best.

Friends, we would like to introduce to you our son, Cedrick John Russell.  Adopted for life.
