We Finalize Tomorrow!

2 years, and 7 months ago, we began our adoption journey.

Several things have changed since then:
  • 3 different addresses, finally settled into our first house!
  • Hailey Drew, our first niece was born (now almost 2!)
  • one new brother-in-law
  • a new dog
  • one more niece and one more niece or nephew on the way!
  • lost Matt's grandfather
  • got a new car
  • Matt earned his Master's degree
  • 4 different jobs (some full-time, some part-time) 
3 months, and 1 day ago, we found out we had a son.

Several things have changed since then:
  • We named him.
  • We have met him, held him, fed him, changed his diapers, prayed over him, and LOVED HIM
  • We cheered him on as he grew from 3 pounds, 5 ounces (when we met him) to 3 pounds, 15.6 ounces (all still in Special Care Nursery)
  • We brought him home
  • We've given him baths, bottles, kisses, hugs, giggles, and a great room
  • We have taken him to doctor's appointments, family dinners, friends' houses, special events, baby showers, and to gather with our church
  • He went on his first trip to BeBe's house
  • We have become a family!

Tomorrow, everything will be finalized in court!  He will LEGALLY have his new name and be part of our family.   

We've been a family for a long time now, but we're so excited for things to be finalized tomorrow!
