The excitement of Adoption Day still has our family buzzing and feeling electric! WOW! It’s interesting, because nothing has changed, but EVERYTHING has changed! Now, we’re busy planning sleepovers (since for 3 years she wasn’t allowed to sleep any where that wasn’t a certified foster home), getting passports for family vacations, (my parents are wanting to take us all on a Disney Cruise, and they want to take Mariah and my niece away for a week to Niagara Falls this summer), booking sleep away camp, and transferring all of Mariah’s documentation at all of her respective places. You know, getting adopted seems like it means a lot less time with Mamas and lots more time with everyone else! Hmph!
Just a few more things to square away to transition Mariah out of Foster Care and into her Adoptive home. And clearly, since you already know we do Milestone Parties pretty huge, Mariah will be having an “Oh-FISH-ially Forever Family” party which already has preparations under way and has an invite list of approximately 150 people! You know, something light! LOL! A colorful underwater extravaganza with fish and octopi and mermaids GALORE! Should be pretty amazing.
I hired a friend of mine to take some photos for us. Jesse Rinka, you have outdone yourself again, friend!
