Happy "Gotcha Day"

Judge and Me signing papers!
He's ours! Happy Daddy!

Today, two years ago we finalized K's adoption. For those of you that have adopted know what a relief and what a joy this is...those of you who haven't can probably imagine. For 7 months K was in our home but was not "officially" ours yet....which seems like such a bizarre thing to say and it was even more bizarre living it. I used to say to M during those 7 months...he's ours and I can't imagine anyone thinking or saying otherwise. He was really ours the second we saw our hearts anyways! We had some difficulties during those 7 months...which led to the delayed finalization. I won't get into it all, but there were times I thought maybe someone would take away my was a time of great trust in the Lord and I am thankful for his goodness and faithfulness through it all.

So, two years ago we went to the courthouse and it was as simple as a judge signing a piece of paper. We are so thankful that the Lord was and still is orchestrating our family! We love you K so much and are so blessed to have you in our lives! Happy "Gotcha Day"!
