What a happy event! Sorry being late to rejoice with you in this note! I suppose none of you really knows whether to laugh or cry for joy and relief for the fulfillment of your desire!

I can grasp a little of your happiness, because my Mom was first a foster child, then adopted. My Grandma and Grandpa Sturm were loving and godly, and brought my Mom up to be fit and very willing to be the lifelong helpmate of a young pastor-in-training, and a God-honoring mother. That means Grandma and Grandpa adopted me too, and saw that I got a good Mom amd Dad.!

"As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man, so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them ..." Ps. 127:4,5a

Our God does the planning when we all follow him!

"Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD, that walketh in His ways." Ps. 128:1

May this be the beginning of many more godly generations ---

I'm very familar with that verse and indeed I'm happy with a full quiver of 4 adult children, 13 grand children and one more on the way and 4 great grand children and now 2 more minor children.

My quiver runneth over.

It’s good they’ll be raised in a loving home. You’re doing God’s work.

I’ve heard a term used to describe adopted children...

They aren’t your “natural” children,
they’re your SUPERNATURAL children,
because God saw fit to put them in your family.

Well Done and hearty best wishes for the newest FReeper family!

A fine example set, for taking the adoption route as well!

Wow! Most excellent news indeed!

Congratulations to you Mr. and Mrs. GB58 for your Foster Parenting and now Full Adoption -- how cool is that! The Judge could clearly recognize your home as the one to permanently adopt Amber and Nick. I'm sure it made his decision an easy one.

Congratulations to you Amber and Nick. Your actions and behavior had to also be key to the Judge enthusiastically making his adoption ruling. You both should be very proud of yourselves! You both are the ultimate blessing to Mr. and Mrs. GB58, and now they and you can start each new day knowing that you will always be family.

God has blessed all four of you indeed.
