Deem Adoption, Adoption Story
I absolutely love when I get the chance to share in someone's adoption story by doing announcements, family portraits or homecomings, but I think my favorite part is actual adoption court ceremonies. Such a formal event for what is really a formality in the life of us adoptive families. These kids are already woven into the fabric of our lives and families by this time. They have become us. That paper solidifies what's already in our hearts--this child is mine forever. It's a great feeling.
And THIS family? They are crazy about this little girl. And she needs no one's approval to love the only family she knows. She knows exactly where she belongs.
