Big Week

One year ago today, we got the call from Bethany with big news that we have been chosen by an expectant mother to parent her baby girl.  It just seems like yesterday!  Read more about that here.  It is so hard to believe that it was a year ago.  Now things have come so far and the adoption is almost complete.  Over the past 8 months, we have grown more and more in love with our daughter.  She brightens our day in more ways that we could have ever imagined.

Since my last post, we’ve had our 2nd visit to our home from our case worker.  The next step is going to court where all will become final!  This is just a legality… really it is pretty much final already… we just need the court to sign off on it now.  Well, this happens on Wednesday.  We are so excited to finalize this.  Adoption is such a long, but rewarding and fulfilling process.  We feel so blessed that we’ve been able to adopt and that God has allowed us to raise little Marissa. We love her SO much!

I had to show you some of her fun faces… she has SO many!  These are just a few that I love!
