Forever Day

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

What a special day it was yesterday! Our families joined us at the courthouse to witness and testify (they really all had to come up to the podium to say something!) our love for Grayden as he became an official member of our family! We are so glad they were all able to come and share in this special event!
It ranks right up there with one of the best days of my life!



before the hearing began

listening to the judge


The judge let Grayden pound the toy gavel!



our supporters!


The white bear and the book was a gift from our adoption case worker and the brown bear was from the judge!

he also gave everyone a mini gavel

After we left the courthouse we had everyone over to our house for some goodies and punch. Grayden changed into his party attire!




We made salt dough ornaments to hand out as party favors!



We ended the day with a movie in bed. We watched Grayden's new Veggie Tales movie "You are Special" How very true that is!

I am so happy for your family. Reading this brought tears to my eyes. I look forward to the day that we will have our own adopted baby, and I think that commemorating "forever day" is a wonderful idea.
