14 Years Ago This Morning...

We received a phone call. It went something like this:

Cindy: Hello

Caller: Cindy, this is Kay, your Social Worker from Holy Family Adoption.

Cindy: Hi Kay. How are you?

Kay: Well, I'm fine. I'm calling to tell you that we have a four week old baby boy for you. When would you like to pick him up?

Well, I can' t remember what I said after that. It's all a blur.

This was truly the most exciting phone call of my life. Needless to say, the next two days were filled with preparations, a lot of phone calls, and an enormous amount of shopping. We had nothing prepared before that phone call. We hadn't even realized that a Birth Mother was considering us as prospective parents.

We are so grateful to John's Birth Mom. She gave us the greatest gift, and we thank God every day for him, and for her decision.
Monday, March 2nd, is "Adoption Day". I will post pictures of the day we brought our beautiful boy home and of our annual Adoption Day dinner. The three of us go out to dinner every year on March 2nd to celebrate the day that we became a family.

One great day. You should have seen us trying to put together a crib!

I am grateful for JJ's birth mom as well. It is wonderful to have him in our family.

Looking forward to seeing the photos.

Jason, as himself said...

We celebrate the adoption of our son, Diego, in March, too! Fond and emotional memories were popping into my head as I read this post.

And now look at you guys!

He is your son, he just had to come to you in another special way :-)
