ADOPTION DAY!

Some very dear friends of ours recently finalized the adoption of their 16 year old son!  We were privileged to be able to be at the final hearing.  It was so awesome to see Vidol sign papers that made him Darren and Tonia's son!  So fun to see him get a forever family, and a new name added to the end of his.  He was so adorable (if he'll allow me to describe him that way!) so happy.  They all were.  It was an emotional, happy, warm, fuzzy feeling.  Praise God!  To Him be the Glory!


It was neat for the kids to get to witness this too.  They were all very well behaved:)


Beautiful family!  He fits right in! 
After the court house we all headed to the school for an Adoption/16th birthday party.

Very fun evening.  Good food, good friends, great reason to be together.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY GREAT THINGS HE HAS DONE!

How awesome that there was such a large crowd for his adoption. He'll never forget the love that you all showed just by being there.
