OFFICIAL ADOPTION DAY

I think one of the biggest blessings of COURT DAY to finalize adoptions is the way the Judge talks about your children ... The way he describes them as forever and always a part of your family ... Even though it is that way already in our hearts and home the fact that it is seen that way by the LAW OF OUR COUNTRY is simply cool ... They way the judge talks about how these are their favorite cases because most of the day is spent in the court room as families are torn apart ... I appreciate the procedure and the process ... It is another step that is not often easy, it takes funds to accomplish it, and you spend an entire morning being dressed up and trying to be quiet (especially not easy for an OATSVALL), but it is just another part of the puzzle that helps us to build the family that GOD has created ... WE ARE THANKFUL TODAY for the process ... 



This is Leigh and Kelly ... They are angels to our family ... They love on Joseph/Daisy every Monday, so I can work at 147, but more than that they pray and encourage my family on our journey everyday ... They are true friends and I am thankful for them !!! 
This is Uncle Wayne (known to most as BOOBOO) ... Joseph Wayne Oatsvall is named after him ... He is a kind and honorable man ... Joseph and him have a smile and joy together that is precious ... He encourages our life and loves us so much !!! 
WE DID IT !!! 

CRAZY 8  !!!
