"I'm reserving our very first meeting photos, as it was a difficult time for Chloe. Those photos represent the loss that is involved with adoption. I was overwhelmed with love when I met her. This picture is of Chloe and me just before the Giving and Receiving ceremony, the occasion that officially made me Chloe's mom. I couldn't be any luckier."
