This weekend our family celebrated National Adoption Day with a wonderful ceremony honoring families in the county who had finalized their adoption this year. I was very excited to be able to go. We started off with a speaker in our city’s courthouse and then took pictures with the judges and speakers.

The kids had the opportunity to sit behind the bench. Superbug thought it a good idea to appear super serious in the picture because “judges are serious”. I love this pic. And btw, I didn’t dress them alike on purpose 🙂
Afterwards, we took a trolley to a fellowship hall where we were greeted with cake and icecream. On each of the tables were gingerbread homes that represented our new forever families. Honeybee really enjoyed the cake and icecream.
Superbug and I worked on the gingerbread house and had a reporter from the local newspaper take our photo. We didn’t think anything of it until Ms. Care texted me this morning and told us that we were in the newspaper.
How awesome was that?! We topped out National Adoption Day off with a potluck dinner at our church. It was a yummy food and wonderful fellowship.
It was a wonderful evening and I am so very thankful that we were able to spend the day together and celebrated so wonderfully. So thankful to be Mommy to my two special little people.
Have a great day.
