a day to celebrate...

*4 years ago today I wrote this post. 
I feel similar butterflies in my stomach as we celebrate again today! 
Enock, I am so thankful that God made you a Box! 
You are such a gift my sweet boy! 

I love you,


Enock Austin Box

We are overjoyed to share that we received legal guardianship of "Baby U" today! We head into the weekend looking forward to good family time as a family of 4! Thank you all for your prayers and support! You have had such a huge hand in bringing our son home. There is no way we can thank you enough for that priceless gift!

Next step in the process is to get our little man a passport! We love you guys and will post again tomorrow!
