It's FiNaL!!!

Yesterday was our Final Adoption Day for Eva, Michael, Amelia, Zachary, Paul, & Caden!!!! We had to be in Holbrook by 10:00 and the hearing started around 10:30. It was a great experience, the kids were so excited (especially about the three cupcakes they each got with their name written on it!), and we are grateful for the friends and family that made the LONG trek to Holbrook to share it with us!! Now we are just looking forward to Eva's baptism tomorrow and their Sealing to us THIS Friday @ 5:00pm!!

The whole gange with Judge Ruechel

Others that were there...Grandma Tenney, Uncle Tim & Aunt Jami, Brock, Nate, Mary Jane, Tyton, Maryssa, Dean & Greta Cronin, Grandma Sue & brother Brandon, Mitchell Herzog, Betty Ann Ellsworth (CASA), and lots of CPS workers!

We were told that this was the biggest adoption to one family on the same day in Navajo County History!

Congratulations! That is so awesome. That will be an awesome sealing. That will be fun trying to get everyone around the altar. Leon and Amy are having their boys sealed to them on the 11th. I will look for on Saturday.
