Our Daughter's Adoption Finalization [in Pictures]
A few weeks ago, we finalized our youngest daughter's adoption in our hometown.
We were eager and ready for the court to deem what we'd already felt for nine months: we are her family.
So on a Friday afternoon, we filled the courtroom with people near and dear to us to witness the judge deeming us worthy as her parents.
There would be no more attorney visits, social worker visits, fingerprints, medical records...
No more "checking in" from the powers-that-be...
On September 11, 2015, we were officially and permanently chosen as Kendra's forever family.
And nothing made me happier that day than knowing we have the privilege of raising this sweet, happy girl as our daughter.
After the short finalization hearing, my parents treated everyone to dinner at our favorite restaurant back home,
The East Bremer Diner
And of course it wouldn't be a celebration in our family without cake!
Thank you for celebrating with us from near and far, and for welcoming this lil' gal into your lives and prayers.
It is such an honor to be chosen as her momma.
