National Adoption Day

In case ya'll didn't know, November is national adoption month.  This year in 2010, Saturday November 20th is National Adoption Day. 

Today I was told that Tigger and I will finalize her adoption on Saturday November 20th.  There will be a huge celebration in our county and we will be one of at least 12 families finalizing in the courthouse. 

Thank you God for the ways in which you have worked with us this will have been 11 months and 5 days since placement.  Tigger and I have grown as mother and daughter.  I have matured in many ways I didn't think was possible.  My emotions have gone from the depths of sadness to the joys and frustrations of everyday life.  I have met amazing people on similar journeys, and I can now see that my "parenting advice" prior to life with Tigger was a bunch of crap.  LOL

Thank you to all those who have been praying for our family for whatever reason, not just adoption related.  I ask you now to pray for us as we embark being a forever that will include heavy topics of adoption, foster care, and whatever honest and hard conversations that may bring between us, as well as the usual stuff associated with growing up female in this day and age.
