Well, we did it!!! Finally, every paper is signed and every document filed away. Our adoption of Emmanuel is finally complete! Its crazy to think that this last year with our Manny, we were still in the waiting phase. Now he is 100% ours on paper! He has been ours since day 1, but now the state recognizes us as his parents. His new birth certificate will say that Mitch and I are his mom and dad.
Near the end of July 2012 we received the good news that Mitch's Visa paperwork had come through and was complete! August 4 we would be moving to New York State. During the wait it always felt like that day would never come, but looking back now, it all went by so fast. I went through all our boxes that had been sitting packed in the basement for 6 months and reorganized everything and got rid of everything I no longer wanted. A moving company came and gave us a quote, but in the end we rented a Uhaul truck and trailered our car behind us.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my page and read little bits about the story The Lord is continually writing for me. I started this page to give myself the opportunity to share with you the things I am most passionate about: Faith, adoption, parenting, health, fitness, art, family, and crazy life experiences.
