As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words… On a day such as this, a million of my words could never do justice to the joy and relief felt by the Pelletier family. Perhaps tomorrow I will try to find the words to sum up this whole saga, but today I just don’t have the words. So, here are a few pictures worth many thousand words to describe a day we have all been waiting so anxiously for:
