Happy Adoption Day
Oh, who would have guessed, who could have seen
Who could have possibly known
All these roads we have traveled, the places we've been
Would have finally taken us home
So here's to you, three cheers to you
Let's shout it, "Hip, hip, hip, hooray!"
For, out of a world so tattered and torn,
You came to our house on that wonderful morn
And all of a sudden this family was born
Oh, happy Adoption Day!

There are those who think families happen by chance
A mystery their whole life through
But we had a voice and we had a choice
We were working and waiting for you

No matter the name and no matter the age
No matter how you came to be
No matter the skin, we are all of us kin
We are all of us one family

Oh, our precious Jadon, you are such a gift to us. We are beyond blessed to have met you 10 years ago today and we are so grateful that you are our son! We have all grown and changed so much since that day that we first held you in our arms in a hotel in Zhangzhou. Thank you for teaching us more and more each day about what it means to love.

Happy Adoption Day, Jadon!
We love you with all of our hearts.

I love that song -- in all the adoption blogs I've read in 7+ years of adoption, I have never seen it before.

Happy 10th Adoption Day! What a beautiful thing to celebrate!
