It's FINAL! :) yay!!!

We finalized the adoption of our youngest child this morning.  I was able to hold her and carry her around the court house with no help.  I stood before a judge without pain.  I sucked in all the wonderful feelings I was having at that moment.  I absolutely KNOW this surgery was the right choice for me.  Even if I never lose another pound, my youngest baby will never know her mommy as an almost 400 pound, home bound woman.  She knows me as the mommy who takes her everywhere, who holds her, WALKS with her, plays with her... In time, none of my kids will remember the old me and for that I am so grateful.  What a wonderful day.  I am so grateful for adoption, I love my husband and kids, my church, my friends... I have a wonderful life that was just waiting to be lived for so many years.  Today is all about love. :)

My mom said that she could not rest easy until the final papers were signed when I was adopted so I can imagine that is how you feel too. She is all yours! What a lovely blessing!
