November 21, 2009 was a day never to be forgotten. 3 years+ and we finally became a family of five. Elijah and Isaiah came to us, by way of emergency removal from their biological home Oct 23, 2006. Many nights we sat by their cribs and cried, and prayed. And many days we feared they would be taken away and returned to that same home they were taken from. Do the boys understand how important this day was? Don't know for sure. Isaiah the week prior kept announcing "we're getting dedopted and having a party" and Elijah woke up the morning after and said, "that judge lasterday made us your ever boys" Yes he did. Never in a million years would I have pictured this as part of God's plan for our lives, but I am so thankful that His ways are not my own, and are better. A day shared with family and friends who have prayed with us and encouraged us; some even questioned us along the way. Definitely a one of a lifetime day.
