The BEST News

It really is the best news. I’m bursting.

Two and a half years ago, my sister and her husband began their journey as foster parents. Well today I am over-the-moon excited to tell you that, on Saturday, they legally adopted their foster daughters!

I have two new nieces, my girls have more cousins, our family is a little bigger, and my sister’s dream of being a mother is finally a solid reality. Make no mistake, she has been their mom for over two years, but now it’s official. Those girls aren’t going anywhere and that feels so good.

You’ve seen this picture before but I just had to post it again. It’s my nieces (the two in front) with my sister’s nieces (Lu and Ru!).

And did anyone see this picture I posted on social media a couple of weeks ago? (sorry about the quality, it was a tiny pic off my phone.) I described these as the most important and special pieces I had ever made. They were commissioned by my sister, one for each girl, bearing their new initials. The girls decided they wanted to take my sister and brother-in-law’s last name and of course they were going to need new initial charm necklaces to shout it out to the world.

New initials, new clan, and rosy new future full of happiness and love for those two little hot tickets our family now calls nieces, daughters, grand daughters, and cousins.

Congrats to them!
