And That’s a Wrap!

We were so excited and relieved to finally wrap up the final step in Beach Bunny’s adoption.  From what I understand, each state has its own laws on how to finalize an adoption, and our state required that we submit more paperwork and go before a judge.  It was easy peasy… the only simple step in the whole process for us. The entire day I had a song playing over and over in my head… “He is Mighty to Save” by Hillsong.  The lyrics that repeated time after time in my mind go like this: 

My Savior, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.

Shine your light and let the whole world see,
We're singing for the glory of the risen King...Jesus.

If you want to hear the melody, watch 30 seconds of this YouTube video.  I love the chorus at 2:31.  The lyrics just jump in and squeeze my heart!  I love to turn the volume waaay up on this song and have a dance party in the family room with my kids.  I love when Beach Bunny requests this song.  She calls it “Meaty to Seeve”.  The Lord, indeed, saved our daughter’s precious life and brought her home to us. We are forever thankful

He is mighty to save!

Tonight or tomorrow I will post pictures from our final adoption day (Family Day, as we call it), but I have to go back to work, so for now…

… that’s a wrap!

Love,

That's awesome! I'll never forget that day in the judges chambers and my sweet attorney friend that insisted on doing this for me for free! What a blessing.

Congratulations! You're right...every state is different...we just had to submit a legal name change form. There was no court appearance!

I LOVE that song too. Isn't it amazing when a song sticks in your memory all day like that!

That's great news!!! I also love that song ... we sing it at church! :) I know Beach Bunny is such a blessing to your family!!! I can't imagine what our life would be like had we not surrendered to the call to bring home our Sadie-Girl!!! Some say our girls are lucky, but you and I both know we are the ones who are blessed because we have THEM!! ;)
