She has the keys to our heart!

Jamie is adopted- Minutes after with Judge Gooding!

Yesterday was our long awaited day - finalization of our adoption of Jamie Madison after 15 long months! We are elated as she is in this picture. Today most of our near and dear were here to share our joy in having her as our forever daughter. A good time was had by all. We are so touched and grateful to have so many people in our world who have been praying for this day to arrive! Grandma Fifi and Uncle Bruce are on their way home in the morning after a nearly perfect day of feting this beautiful occasion. Aunt Patty and Unka John hosted the party (which was at our house!) - they brought lots of food, flowers and a beautiful cake that said:

"Faith began this journey... "

Jamie will be sad to see her fans are no longer here in the morning! She was getting accustomed to lots of applause and many eyes on her every move. Mommy and Daddy only? Where is my crowd of admirers!?!

Hey Martha,

Congrats! Congrats! Congrats! Jamie is amazing. I have a new respect for foster parents; the love I see in your eyes when you talk about Jaime is so touching. You deserve everything and more. I'm so glad everything worked out. Jamie is a very lucky girl.
