Adoption Day

Adoption Day

Wow. What a crazy last couple of weeks!! So many things have happened, I can barely believe it. Of course, the most amazing of them all was our adoption finalization! It was an open invitation to all our family and friends – we kind of wanted it that way. It gave everyone an opportunity to be there and didn’t want anyone to be left out! Here are a few pictures of our very special day! A huge thank you to our amazing photographer Lauryn Marette for capturing this day for us.

This last picture really says a thousand words. It represents all those who made it and those in the spirit who wanted to be. This day will be remembered for years to come. We realized how blessed we are. We are always loved. We are always supported. We are always prayed for. Our family truly is blessed! We are so happy for all of you for supporting us during this WHOLE process. For encouraging us when we felt like this was never going to end. For praying for us when we were at a loss for words. For loving us in the tough and dark times. For that, we are forever grateful. And now, we can breathe because we have reached that light at the end of the tunnel! We can smile, laugh and celebrate that we are finally and officially a family! Forever, we are thankful for you all and for the beautiful family God knit together just for us. 

XOXO, Lidy

    I came across your blog this morning and ready every post of your adoption process. My husband and I are just starting our adoption journey and I have found such strength in reading stories such as yours. I appreciate you sharing not only your joys but the pain and tears endured along the way. Congratulations on your beautiful family and my God continue to provide strength and support!

    • HelloLidy

      Thank you Carrie! I am so honored that we can be a support system to you and your husband, in a way. It’s our pleasure to be able to share our adoption journey with others, especially when you can draw hope and joy knowing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel! Don’t hesitate to reach out in any way if you ever need someone to talk to or vent to! My email is hellolidyblog@gmail.com. Thanks again for your words and popping by!

    All the most heartfelt congratulations to you and your family! I just stumbled upon the adoption posts here and I read all of them with tears in my eyes. The day we met our daughter was the most profoundly joyful day of our lives, followed only by the day we finalized her adoption six months later. I truly, truly understand your pain and your subsequent joy completely, and I’m so grateful to you for writing about it so beautifully. Thank you and hooray!!

    • HelloLidy

      Thank you so much Jess! For your empathy and for your sweet words :) Congrats to you as well – there truly is nothing like adoption! It’s such a beautiful picture of unconditional love and we are so thankful that we were blessed with our three perfect children. I am sure you feel the same!
