Adoption Day Feelings

Today was truly one of the best days of my life... one of those huge precious monumental moments, that you want to just capture every second of, wrap it up tight, and hold it in your heart forever...

I want to remember every face that came to court with us, our "village", the ones that have been with us through every step of this fostering/adopting journey,

I want to remember my adorable 2 year old SON, Dylan , who sat on the witness table and took his shoes off 100 times, much to the crowds delight.

I want to remember the family and friends that filled the courtroom to overflowing- to the point of many of them sitting and kneeling on the floor, what a joy to see them all surrounding us.

I want to remember our 3 year old SON, Brayden, tapping the microphone a thousand times as he pondered what all this excitement was about,

I want to remember how my voice cracked, and the tears fell as I was asked about our sons, our forever sons, given to us from God...

I want to remember the love and pride that I had for my other children and grandchildren as I turned around and saw an entire pew/bench filled with their loving, supportive smiles...

I adore my big, crazy, love filled family...

I want to remember my husband smiling at me through the crowd in the hallway, the unspoken words traveling between us - oh, how I love him!

I want to remember the reception, the pictures, the hugs and the laughter...

oh Father, please help me always remember the feelings I had today, store them in my heart.

Today, this afternoon, this evening, we have simply come home with all of our children and basked in the love of each other... I could have already swarmed Facebook with pictures... but, today was about simply basking and loving...
