Family Stories - Cyndi and Dan

"Since the kids were adopted life has been busy.  We were able to have lots of firsts as a real official family.  Jeffrey had an amazing first year in Kindergarten.  He has grown so much both emotionally and physically.  Jada attended preschool and did awesome.  We have had our first “official” Christmas, kids birthday, mother’s and father’s day.  I have been referring to everything as our first legal Christmas or whatever now that we are an official family.

This past summer the kids spent at home for the first time in their lives.  We had a babysitter that came to the house.    They are also were in swimming lessons all summer.  They love to go camping so we have done that several times.

For us some of the  most amazing things are sometimes the small things.  Just being able to do things as an “official” family.  Signing the first school form as the actual parent was so liberating."
