Jasper's Adoption Day

After the computer crashing about three times, I am finally getting a chance to load these photos. Unfortunately I was hoping to be done and off to bed by now.

Today was great. We officially expanded our family by one more member. Once again, nothing really feels different. We were completely devoted to Jasper before today, so it really didn't change anything in our minds and hearts. But legally, the paperwork and everything else associated with it is done.


Jasper Hadley Croom was officially named today with us as is parents.

The court proceedings went smoothly. Our dear friend Leigh, who was nice enough to recommend us for both our children when the state called her first, came with us and took the photos you will see below. We are so blessed to have such a great friend that is willing to take off work and do this for us. It is just plain awesome to have photographs from the days that both of our children were adopted.
