Totally amazing how you can capture your close to 2 year journey in less than 8 minutes. I am pouring tears, being so thankful to our Lord Jesus for making this happen for you guys. He is an amazing Lord, who grants us blessings and answers to prayers! Who knew that this precious child would have such a wonderful family, other than our God, who ordained it for Jonas from conception. I am in total awe.....

I was about to complain that you made us wait 5 minutes to see his beautiful face, but then I realized that when compared to your wait to see his face I had no room to talk!!
