It’s been a bit since we last chatted. I will admit to you that the past several weeks have been some crazy weeks in the Jackson household. (More to come on this at a later time.) We have exciting and very special news to share with you all!
**WARNING: An overuse of exclamation points will be happening in this post. It is only a side effect of sheer joy and excitement!!!!!!!!
After waiting many, many months… We can officially introduce you to our ENTIRE FAMILY!!!
The adoption orders were FINALLY signed!
We could not be more thrilled to officially be a family!!!
No more social workers showing up at our house, no more lawyers, and paperwork, and all the heart-wrenching waiting is OVER!
The moment we knew we were officially a family was worth the wait.
Foster Care and Adoption is no joke. It is hard work. It is a lot of tears, love, laughter, and gut wrenching unknowns. I will be honest and tell you that there have been moments when I feared I would never be able to show these sweet faces to the world. But, here we are. And now I promise to make you sick of seeing my children! HA!!!!
THE JACKSON GIRLS
THE JACKSON BOYS
You will be hard pressed to find me complaining about much right now. I don’t care if some strange flu bug just hit our whole house… I am so happy. Jon and I can not even begin to tell you how blessed we are. All six of our kids are beautiful, healthy, and they are pretty much the greatest kids ever!
To sum up just how I feel…
And so World…
This is my family!
Whole and Complete!
And absolutely OFFICIAL!!!!!
Thank you for being a part of this journey. It isn’t over. It has just begun. And there are so many new adventures to be had. Until then…
