Adoption Day!

14 years ago today a wonderful boy came into our lives. His birth mother chose us to be his parents. What an honor.

We are so blessed and grateful for this now teenage handful. He completes our family - and makes every day interesting and different. Our beautiful John James, named after both of his grandfathers, is the light of our lives. We love him so much.
Each year on March 2nd we celebrate "Adoption Day". It is the day we became a family. We go out for a nice dinner - John chooses the restaurant. This year he chose Rudy's. One of his favorites! He loves steak - and their baseball cut sirloin is "to die for".


To quote a beautiful poem - "you did not grow in my tummy... you grew in my heart". And, you continue to grow in our hearts. We love you John! Forever!

Another great time on Adoption Day. We had great food, the Baseball Cut is the best. Notice how much John is growing. He will over take me in a year or so.
