The process of adopting a child can be long, difficult and emotional. Such was the case for the couple below, who hoped and prayed for many years to be able to adopt a baby of their own.

In 2014, that day finally arrived when they brought a little girl named Delaney home from China.

“That’s what we’ve waited for,” Mom says while looking at Delaney’s photo. “Seven and a half years… and now she’s ours,” Dad says back.

The following video takes viewers on a roller coaster of raw emotions, from seeing Delaney’s face on the computer for the first time, to officially getting their travel approval to China, to Delaney’s “Gotcha Day” where they meet her and bring her back home.

Throughout the adoption process, Mom never went a day without her special charm necklace donning Delaney’s face. Meanwhile, Delaney always carried around her special pillow with Mom and Dad’s faces on it…

…but when Delaney finally realizes her new parents are in the same room and sitting right in front of her? Priceless.
