It has finally arrived!

After weeks of work, Scott and I have finally finished the video of our journey to Jonas

I hope it touches your heart... Jonas is an amazing gift that we would have never known unless we took a leap of faith.

Love it! I have already cried multiple times over the pictures of you getting Jonas. I made it completely tear free until the pictures of you meeting Parker and Brooke in the airport! So sweet. I also LOVE the pics at the end.
Love,

I seriously should not have watched that right after putting my make up on! Loved it.

Oh Heidi, you made me cry several tmes! I was already misty eyed through the first part, but then when you cried when you met Jonas, I couldn't help it. And then of course the homecoming scene... well... big, fat tears rolling down my cheeks then too. How could I not?!

What a beautiful compilation. And darn it, I'm not ready for more kids, but once again, you're making me want another! :-)

I also loved how Jessica and Amy were both weaved into the video. The three of you are such special people, and for whatever reason, it just seems so fitting.

Loved it!

So amazing. The whole last year has been an unbelievable journey and to see it again unfolded was precious. I cried through it all of course! What a gift sweet Jonas is to us. Thank you for following Gods call on your life.

SOOOOOO worth the wait! Words won't do justice for the love we all feel watching the actual hands and feet of Jesus in action! I hope we all can take steps in our lives to follow your family's example. I can't tell you how proud I am of you and Scott and look forward to seeing God and His love at work. I love you!

Jessica said...

Love it! It brought back so many emotions. I can't wait to get back there someday. We just love Jonas and your whole family. I'm so thankful that the Lord has put us in eachothers' paths.

Hi, Heidi. I'm Andrea Young's little sister. I just came to see your slideshow... and I really never cry while watching these things, but yours really grabbed me! I love the songs you chose, each & every one. The snapshots of the people in Africa and the song about courage was so amazing, I really can't express it in words. Jonas is SO beautiful! I don't know you, but it's completely obvious that he'll be loved & taken care of so well in life. I wish the best to all of you on your continued journey & thanks so much for sharing your message with the world.

Erica said...

I loved your video--I think all the time about how we will make ours special. Can't wait til the time comes. We are adopting a 2 year old baby girl from E and are waiting on a court date. I'm anxious to keep up with your family. :0)
