Yeah!  We are now an eternal family :)  We have been so blessed.  Thanks to all for your love and support.  Without that, we couldn’t have done this.  We are so grateful for all that we have been given.  Now we can relax and enjoy our 3 beautiful children.

So Close…

We are so close. We signed papers on Sept 1st. Now we are just waiting to hear when our court date is. Ugh!!!!! We have waited so long. But, it is sooo worth it. The boys are such a blessing in our lives & soon they will be part of our Forever Family.

27 Days & Counting…

I thought I would update you all…we had our 26 hearing (sever parental rights) for the boys at the end of June.  We have to wait 60 days in case they appeal.  So we have 27 days to go until that 60 days is up and we can start the paper work for adoption.  It has been a long process, but by doing so, we shouldn’t have any problems later.  They are now 13mos old and are starting to take those first steps.  Little Man more so than Big Boy.  It is fun watching them grow and learn.  I will be so glad when we can finally call them Farnham.  Then we can have them sealed to us for all eternity.  Yeah!!!

Family Photo…

I didn’t realize I hadn’t blogged in so long.  We are one step closer to getting the boys.  In February, reunification services were terminated and the boys case is now in adoptions.  We go to court in June for parental rights severed and then hopefully they will be ours by September.  Seeing as they aren’t ours yet, we can’t post any family pictures.  This is as close as we can get until then.

Today is another day to be thankful for the many blessings we have been given.  We went to court to find out if we would be granted DeFacto Parent.  It was a big YES!  We can now sit up with the boys lawyers and get all the papers from the court. “It mostly means that court recognizes that we have an interest in the welfare of the boys and that we are to be notified of everything.  It's a big deal that the court recognizes you and will hear what you have to say”. (as said by Andrea)  I’m just so excited.  Our next big court date is Feb 15th.  That one will be a nail biter.  But, until then, we can enjoy our holidays.  Can’t wait to do pics for Christmas :o)

4th Grader!!…

Well, we now have a 4th grader.  So excited, yet sad.  She is growing up too fast.  She is very excited, yet worried about some of her classmates she had a problem with last year.  We will see how this goes.  Good luck!!  We love you and know you will do great!




She gets to rider her bike to school this year!
