Happy Adoption Day, Pax!

Oh mister Pax, what a day of celebration we are having! Your finalization day has been a long, long, long time coming. This morning it all became official. We will forever be your family. You will forever be our son. And you will forever bear our name. Today has been exciting thus far! On September 14, 2009, we saw your face in person and met you for the first time. After introductions and some wonderful time with your birthmom, we slipped you into your carrier, secured you into our car and drove you home. It was that day that you became our son. Not today. It was that day that I immediately felt this unconditional love that somehow has continued to grow and has nearly burst open my heart too many times to count. It's been a little bumpy getting to this day. I've been frustrated at times. And just plain sad at other times. And over the last 17 months, there were moments that I was overcome with fear. I was fearful that we might not see this day. That I might wake up one morning and you would no longer be in our home. And those thoughts were completely overwhelming. They first drove me into a panic, but then to my knees. For I know by now that God does not give us a spirit of fear and timidity. That fear wasn't from the Lord.

So once again in our lives, He has shown us goodness. He has been faithful. He has answered our prayers in the way we hoped He would. You are another miracle in our family and evidence of our great God. And we are grateful to God who has accomplished this. Honestly, grateful can't really describe it. We are overwhelmed what God has done for us in building our family. When I think of how He has woven us together and made us a family, I'm truly in awe. So today, we will celebrate you and how you are officially and legally our boy forever! And I can't help but praise God who made it all happen. Baby boy, you are a blessing beyond any words my mouth can even muster. I am privaledged and honored to be your momma FOREVER. We love you, mister Pax!

Amazing post!!! So well said, I have been thinking a lot about this lately and how the Gotcha Day just hasn't been sounding right to me just recently because, the day I feel we "Gotcha" slipped into our hearts was the day they were placed in my arms but then again well... this could be really long, congrats adorable boys you have!
