IT'S OFFICIAL!!!!!!!!!

We just received word today that Abby's adoption is FINALIZED!  We are now officially and legally a family of 3!  Not that we needed a piece of paper to tell us that but boy does it feel good to have everything finalized!  We have been counting down to this day for the last 8 months.  I always wondered how we would feel when it was over and I can say that I am completely overwhelmed with emotions!  I cannot even say "our adoption is finalized" out loud without crying!  We are just so thankful and grateful and blessed.  God is so good!  Words cannot express our gratitude towards God and towards Abby's birth mother has given us the honor of parenting such an amazing little girl.  We are just amazed!  Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers along this journey and will continue to cherish them on the journey ahead!

Woo Hoo!! I know you all must be so excited! I know you were already a family, but having that piece of paper in hand makes it real somehow. It's like being engaged and then being married. :) Congratulations to all of you!

I know the feeling! Boy's adoption was finalized last month and for me, it was just a formality that topped off what had already taken place in our hearts.

Congratulations!
