Sunday night we had an adoption celebration for my nephew!
My sister, who lives in WI with her hubby and 2 other sons, had been fostering Robert. After going through hell with the birth parents for a couple years, they were finally able to adopt him a couple weeks ago. So they came back to KY so we could all celebrate.
We are SO happy that he is officially part of our family!
We all wrote messages on these puzzle pieces, and my sister will put the puzzle together and then frame it.

|How amazing is the cake my twinnie made for him! I cried the first time I saw it.|
|Brothers for life|
|Loving on their youngest brother|
A very serious moment with the twin
|And then a not so serious moment|
While I was there I thought it would be fun to go muddin' and get my car stuck. Thankfully I have a lot of big, tough brother in law's, who pulled me out. Of course I had just gotten my car washed too.
And since everything had now expired, we would have to pay all the fees all over again, etc. We just weren't able to do it, so that door shut.
But of course I still think about what could've been, all the time. So, adoption is very close to my heart.
Robert truly brings so much joy to our family. I just wish they lived closer!
