Oh!!! So sweet, I'll have to watch it again with sound as the one I'm on right now doesn't have sound, but even just the visual... I have a happy lump of tears right there in my throat! And he seemed SO gentle with Ellie, but awww, Ethan just looked so happy to see all of you (and I'm sure you were all glad to see him). Glad to see you arrived safely, have a wonderful week!

Sarah, What a precious video, We can only imagine Stan and Pat trying to hold the little guy back until you got there busting at the seams would probably have been an understatement. Love you guys!

You don't know me as I happened upon your blog by accident ... but your daughter's story has touched me and I think & pray for every day.

The video is so very touching and had me - a stranger - in tears. I hope your family enjoys the much needed and much deserved family time.
