Tip of the Week:
Do you know what a Gotcha Day is? I ran into friends celebrating their ‘Gotcha Day’ at Starbucks a few days ago with their beautiful kids and before you knew it someone else was talking about their ‘Gotcha Day’.
Both international adoptive families and domestic adoptive families celebrate the day they received their child – the day they ‘gotcha’! Each family celebrates with their own traditions and ways to remember that day. I know international adoption families that celebrate the culture of the country the child was born in and some who continue fun and silly traditions they started when they arrived back home in the U.S.
No matter how you celebrate it is a highlight for this office to finish an adoption. We love ‘Gotcha Days’ here!
