It is truly the best way to end the year as an official family of five! It was much longer this time, she has truly felt like "ours" since last year when her parents did a conditional relinquishment, But, nice to have it truly be official!
 

Our three:


Carly, mama to DS C (5th grade), DD Miss M (07/09, fostered 1/10, adopted 08/10), and Little Miss C (11/10, fostered 01/11, adopted 11/12). Foster Son, Mr. A, age 11 placed 10/13.
