Happy Gotcha Day!

August 23
One year ago my Mom and I walked into Tokmok Orphanage for the last time and left with Beck and a new life. He was a quiet, scared little boy and I can't imagine what must have be going through his little mind as he sat on the bed at the hotel. Everything was new to him, the sights, the smells, the food. A Mommy. A Grammy. He was the center of attention for the first time in his life.

Signing him officially out of Tokmok

The sweatest moment: Beck waves "pa-ka" to his friends.

So much has changed in one quick year!

How quickly time flies. Happy Gotcha Day and 1 year anniversary as a new family. I am so happy that we met, and I look forward to meeting many more times.

Hugs from Jackie & Noli

I know! It's wonderful that I know 7 out of 11 kids have forever families AND I have had the most wonderful opportunity to meet either online or in person all of them!

It's funny - it seems like he has always been a part of your family, in a way! He fits right in and I can't imagine Casa De Tyler without little Beckett. :) We love you, Beck - so glad Mala, Joe, and Morgan "gotcha."
