Gotcha Day!


I'm finally blogging about the day we officially became a family!! We've been a family since September 17, 2008. But, we legally became family forever on December 4, 2009! This was basically our family's version of "labor and delivery." We were so blessed to have our families there to witness this very special day!!

A HUGE, GIGANTIC, THANK YOU to Chiara Davidson, of Chiara Davidson Photography!! She volunteered to take all of our adoption day and party day photos! Thank you for your amazing work and gift of time!!!










Our GREAT social workers!!






The moment that reality set-in....waiting for the elevator immediately after court.




Mariah LOVED her sucker from Judge Shaw!!


Our wonderful attorney!

December 5, 2009...GOTCHA PARTY!!!




















**Just realized that several of the fun Gotcha Day Party pics that I thought I posted didn't post....bummer!

Hi Aubrey! I don't know if you remember me, I met you when you joined the MRCC youth group way back when. Anyway, in a very roundabout way I just happened across your blog and just needed to tell you (as if you didn't already know) that your daughter is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE! I am excited for you and your husband, and I am inspired by your story. Congratulations! You make a beautiful family.
