Because I'm Happy-- like Pharrell


So yesterday, this happened and I had to be all vague and mysterious about it:

But no more mystery. Many of you have sent your prayers and well-wishes my way throughout the looooong adoption journey my sister and her husband have been through. I think the last update I gave you all was back in October when we thought things were going to be finalized soon. It's been a waiting game ever since, with details I won't share- but month after month we waited, and worried. So you can probably imagine my reaction when I got the following news yesterday:

AFTER 14 MONTHS THE ADOPTION IS FINALLY OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL!!!

I spazzed. I cried. I almost fell out of my chair. And I most definitely celebrated with a Mountain Dew and a few Starburst at work. My sweet little niece has been with our family since she was born and now a huge burden of worry and anxiety is lifted from us all. No more worrying, or waiting. My sister has been so strong and amazing through the entire process and I am so proud of the amazing mother she is. My niece is the luckiest girl in the world to have them as parents!
blessed by adoption

So excuse me while I dance my booty off, cry happy tears and thank our awesome God for the blessing he has given our family! I cannot image our lives without her sweet smile, her adorable personality and everything in between. I'M HAPPY!

  24. How exciting and congratulations!!!!!!!!! It took my parents 3 years to have my adoption papers finalized and they've mentioned it was such a stressful 3 years to know I could be taken away at any given moment, so I'm sure this is a huge relief for your family!!! So exciting!!


    PS is it bad that when you get to be in your mid/late twenties, your first reaction is "OMG she's pregnant!!" When someone says they've got good news?
