The greatest trust that can come to a man and woman is the placing in their keeping the life of a little child”

We're finalized!

Today I just feel joy and such happiness to be able to say that I'm McKay's Mom. I have been his mom this whole time and I sure love my little boy but I'm now legally his mother! what a joyous thing that is!

We went to court yesterday and finalized our adoption! that means we are now legally his parents.
The whole experience was something new and also amazing! I've actually never been to court before [that's okay by me!] and so it was something different for me.
To finalize means that we went before a judge, answered questions and said that we wanted to be his parents. We signed a paper which the judge also signed and then we were done! such a simple action for such a big meaning.
I'm so happy and very much looking forward to raising this precious little boy!
Heavenly Father has truly blessed us!Us with our judge. After she signed the papers she said that she was coming down to hold that baby! which she did! she was a very nice judge. :)

Happy to say, here's our little family!

All our family that came to support us!

Here's my favorite little boy in the world!

Adoption is amazing and I'm so glad and grateful that we get to be a part of it. It has been such a blessing to me and I'm proud to say that my son is adopted. I never truly knew much about adoption and I'm glad that Heavenly Father lead us in this direction and what a miracle it all is. We absolutely love our birth mother and her selfless sacrifice. She has changed our lives forever.
