What a BEAUTIFUL video! I almost cried watching it! I don't see how anyone can say you have too many kids. Each of them is so very precious to you and Alex will always know how very much you love him, just from watching this video. Thank you for taking us along on this amazing journey.

Well done. I can imagine Alex looking back at this when he is all grown up and being so glad you took the trouble to record everything.

My girls and I watched this video this morning. We loved it and I am glad you found a song that you liked for the video. It was fun to talk about Alex's adoption and Dennis' with Liera and Griffin. They know this is where Mary is from! So cool, thanks for sharing!

So very sweet! I loved seeing all the video clips. It is fun to watch Dennis and John fall down when Alex plays the instrument. That was precious! Thanks for sharing!

GREAT video, very touching, and PERFECT song! I've heard it before; wouldn't have thought of it, but it's great!

Leah said...

Well, thanks for starting my day out in tears! LOL I love the whole video, but my favorite is the end, with his beautiful singing! Can you just picture, 20 years from now, watching that video with him???? I'd love to know what he was singing.

It's perfect Christine! The videos are precious, his little voice just catches hold of my heart.

Luke sat and watched it with me. He keeps saying "I want to see that kid fall into the balls again!" "I want to see that kid laugh." " I want to hear that kid sing." ... LOL ... so we are sitting watching it over and over...

I LOVE the video...especially the part where Alex blows the horn and John and Dennis pretend to be "blown down" ...it truly illustrates how well Dennis has meshed with your family in such a healthy way :) Blessings to your family!

Aww, great video!

The McEacherns said...

So beautiful. I teared up at the lyric that says, "I was wondering if I could come home, " since we believe that our two little ones are there waiting to do just that! Thanks for sharing your journey with us! Blessings!

My favorite part was when Alex was blowing the horn and Daddy and Dennis were getting 'blown'
over by it....Alex's laugh is the best! Thanks for sharing!

Very, very touching video and gives us such an insight to the blessing you have in Alex and the rest of your family.

I don't know where you get the time or creativity for such a keepsake but I would love it to rub off on me!!!

beautiful!!

I love the part where Daddy & Dennis are "blown down" by the horn. Both that Alex was laughing & that Dennis copied his Dad. Shows how far they have come & continue to come

Much love

what a fantastic video! Alex is adorable!

Jill and Cliff said...

What a precious child!!!! God is truly amazing and you can see him in the face of each child he has created. All children deserve a home of their own and I admire you for offering God's children a place to call their own. A family that will love them and accept them just as they are and encourage them to do what they are capable. You have a wonderful family and I pray God blesses all of you each and every day.

Christine said...

Anonymous-- what was the point of commenting at all? Scratching my head at your lack of couth. How old are you??? Glad you thought the video was nice. Good day to you.

Loved the part especially where Alex laughs at John flipping over due to the horn sound. Who made the song? Love it...

Kristina said...

Hi, I'm from Germany and I've been following both of your blogs for quite a while now. I must say that you've definately chosen the right song! Bright Eyes is my absolute favorite artist ever and it fits perfectly - the song is simple but says it all!
