One Year Ago Today

One year ago today we finalized both Tyler and Emmalee's adoptions. It was wonderful. I can't help but reflect on all the feelings we had. When the judge announced to us that these were now legally our children, it was a bit overwhelming. Of course, they were already our children in every way that mattered. But, knowing that they were legally ours, that no one could ever take them from us, there just aren't words to describe it. Adoption is a miracle!

Somehow I came across your blog today and I'm glad I did. I placed my son with LDSFS almost 5 years ago, and it makes my heart happy to hear of other families who have been able to enjoy the blessing of adoption. Thank you for sharing your "gotcha day" stories so publically!
