So, some of you aren’t on facebook, so I wanted to show you pictures from today’s events. If you are on facebook, sorry for bombarding you. I’d like to recount the day on here for our family records anyways.
ELIJAH is officially, 100% ours. Yay!!!!! No, we don’t feel any different. He has been ours since day 1. It is SUPER awesome to know that he will forever be apart of our family and no one can take him away from us. That is always an adoptive parents worse fear. Oh my, he is just the cutest.
I can’t believe it happened so fast. Yes we have been trying to have a family for almost 6 years, but the whole adoption process happened extremely quick with him. You can check out our adoption timeline here. For fostercare this is really fast. We completed our classes only last September. God has definitely had his hand in all of this.
Today, I let him take it easy and play his leap pad thingy while I got everyone’s outfits out and ready. I usually don’t let him play it but once a week. The baby slept perfectly and I was able to get everything done. They actually called us early and said they were ready for us if we could load up and come on down.
Our super awesome friends, but more like family, met us there for the momentous event! They were actually able to come back into the judge’s office with us and take pictures. It was super quick and we just swore to take care of this child. Then we were done. Elijah specifically requested PB&J, so we all went out to celebrate at McAlister’s afterwards.
So, a pretty awesome day. We can’t wait to (hopefully) be doing this again in the near future with Everett! By the way he smiles so much and he totally has a dimple on his left cheek! And for those of you curious, yes, we want more children. Maybe just one or two. We will definitely be waiting until Everett is a little older. It is very hard to do fostercare when there are other children in the household. Sure, Jeff and I can handle the children coming in and out of our lives, but our 3 year old has a much harder time. There’s no telling what the future holds. I know it’s in His hands.
