Charli Beth's Adoption Day!

Our family has had huge news to share with our readers for about two weeks now, but I have been holding out so I could share photos of our special day.

Before Curtis and I married last year we talked about our life with Charli and how our parenting would continue once we did all become "a family." We had made the decision for Curtis to adopt her as his own, before our wedding was held. I knew that he was the love of my life, my best friend, and there was no other person in the world that I would trust her life with as a Father other than him - no matter what.

Even though this day took longer than we wanted and actually did not change anything other than a last name, it was day that was more special to my heart than anything else. I know in the years to come Charli will be more grateful than words can express to Curtis; just as I am with the love that my Daddy gives to me on a daily basis.

When I tried to explain the process of adoption to Charli, she was completely baffled by the entire process. I tried to using the words or "official" and "Daddy will now be your Daddy Daddy, and nothing can ever change that" while asking her if she remembered it being just her and I before Daddy and I married. Her reply, simply took my breath away "But Mommy, he already is my Daddy Daddy. I am excited that I get the same last name as everyone. But Daddy is my Daddy."

Melt my heart baby girl, because there are no truer words than that very statement.
I know in years to come, this will all make perfect sense to Charli Beth, but for now until it is time to explain how our family came to where we are now, I am just so proud that her initials are now CBH!

this brings tears to my eyes! My step dad tried to adopt me when I was little (about charlie's age) and my bio father would not let him...even though he is not in my life he would not let my step dad adopt me. He isn't (and never was) my step dad, he was always my dad and even though I had a terrible man's last name I always will have my daddy's heart and that matters more to me than anything!

Happy for you all!!!

Awesome! I still remember my adoption day 18 years ago! I was twelve, and it was such a special day...but I had always considered my Dad as my Dad whether I had his last name or not!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
