Meeting your child–no matter how he or she is brought into your world—can be a beautiful moment.

As adoptive parents, some of us may witness our child’s first breath at the hospital. Others may wrap their arms around their son for the first time inside an airport, or squeeze tightly when a social worker drops off a set of siblings for a new foster care placement.

Do you have photos of the first moments with your child? We’d love to see them — share them in the comments below!
