Adoption Day

A little over 2 1/2 years ago, Tim and I began the process to hopefully adopt 2 children from Uganda.  At that time, Kaden was about 9 months old and we thought the whole process would only take about 9 months to a year.  After a year of waiting we were matched with Melody.  One week before we were matched with Melody we found out we were pregnant with Piper.  About a week and half before Piper was born we found out one of us needed to make a trip to Uganda to sign paperwork.  Thankfully Piper was born 2 1/2 weeks early and the day before Piper's due date, Tim left for Uganda.  Tim met Joey while on that trip and we were matched with him shortly after.  After two more trips to Uganda, the kids came home marking two years of waiting coming to an end.  Wednesday, December 10th Tim and I were granted full and final adoption making us officially mom and dad!  We are very thankful to have this process come to an end, the Lord has been very gracious to our family and the transition for all of us was not as overwhelming as we thought it could be.
