Adoption Day!

Today was a very special day indeed. Today we made Dezzi and Lucas part of our family.
We went to court in our matching T-shirts and this wonderful Judge signed the papers. It tock all of ten or 15 minutes for the entire hearing.

Here are all the people who attended our hearing. From left to right Chantell our adoption worker, Karen O'Cain our county worker, and two other amazing workers but their names escape me. I am so sorry. But one is the head of the foster care department and the other is a parent aid.

After the hearing we had a balloon releasing ceremony. It was very nice.

Everyone released their balloons when their name of position was called. It included everyone who made today possible.

It was a little chilly and windy but that's ok.

The final two balloons were released for Lucas and Dezzi.

After the hearing we headed to the church for a party with our friends. The kids even had their birth grandma, great grandparents, uncle, siblings and cousins present for the occasion. What a blessing they are to the kids.

It was a pot luck and there was lots of good food to eat.

Here are Dezzi's cupcakes with her new initials on them.

The special cake with all of our firsts initials on them including Ansir and all the pets.

Lucas's cupcakes with his new initials.

Finally a picture with all the kids who are part of Dezzi and Lucas's birth family. I am so glad that we are able to keep these family ties.
The Lord has blessed us beyond our wildest dreams.
To God be the Glory!
Sing Praises to your King!
