It's official: she is OURS!!!!!

We finalized our adoption of our baby girl today at 3:15!!!!!!!!!

Birthfather never showed. Birthmother gave her testimony. The judge deemed us the rightful parents of our beautiful angel girl. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect ending.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you. It isn't adequate enough to tell you thank you, but we do: for your prayers, phone calls, prayers, emails, prayers, dinners, prayers and for those able to show up May 12 and today. We are overwhelmed with love and gratitude for your support; we could NOT have survived without it.

We give God the full credit for today. There is nothing else we can say except Praise the Lord for his mercy and love. Our family couldn't be more obviously created by Him, and we couldn't be more proud to give him the full credit.

We love you all and simply say Thank you.

Well Praise God!!! So happy for you guys. It's wonderful to see the hand of God in action through prayer. It's certainly more joyful to praise God when the outcome is joyful and as desired. I hope the birth-parents are equally blessed over time as you two, daughter one and now as blessed as daughter two most certainly is (names withheld for privacy?). We rejoice with you.

What a legacy this little girl has lived already in her short time on this earth. She is a living testament to the awesome hand of God, and I know your family will never be the same after this.

It is such a blessing to see you all on the other side of this. CONGRATULATIONS!!! Can't wait to see that 100% Kelsey girl tomorrow!
