Two new additions to our family
Vanity ^ | May 22, 2012 | Self

Today at the Tazewell County Court House in Pekin, Illinois, our adoption of our children became final. They are Amber Agee and Nick Agee, ages 13 and 12 respectively.

Amber and Nick are sister and brother and have been in our care for about 4 years and we have been actively pursuing this adoption for the past two years.

Rejoice with us. God is truly wonderful!

Our new children will be reading the comments.

I'm pinging a few hundred of my close friends, if I omitted anyone it was unintentional. If you're pinged more than once, get over it. Just kidding, I'll never make another massive ping like this again.

When our adoption was totally final and we received the paperwork, our son was so relieved. I could just see it on his face. I said...it was never in question...he said I just want the paperwork done. By that time he was 15 and understood maybe more than I did at the time.

He has one boy and is the best Dad I know.

May God Bless you all. Just a word of advice from my Mother about teenagers; “Give a measure of discipline often, followed with a double measure of love and understanding and you both will survive the teen years.”

Yes and they have "new" brothers and sisters, sister 45, brother and sister ages 41 and brother age 40. Our oldest daughter takes great delight in introducing her new siblings to friends as her brother and sister.
