A special Day for our Family
Many of you you who know my family well know that my parents have been raising my niece Taylor since she was just an infant. I won't go into details about how all that came to pass because it's what is happening today that I want to focus on. Taylor is now 6 years old, almost 7. And today she is officially adopted by my parents. It has been a long, sometimes very painful journey for my parents to get to this day. And I just wanted to use this opportunity to acknowledge them and the amazing people they. They have loved Taylor unconditionally from the start. It never crossed there minds to abandon her or leave it up to someone else to take and care for her. In a time in their lives where most people are slowing down and enjoying the fruits of their labor, they have sacrificed to give Taylor a loving, and safe home. Taylor has known great love, because of my parents. I am so thankful to have Taylor in our lives. She is a blessing! So on this "Adoption Day" I give thanks to God for leading my parents and really our whole family through this journey. This adoption is merely a formality but it's an amazing day nonetheless. Here is Elijah, Taylor and Isaiah when she came out to visit us in Washington!
