I ask the families I work with who are completing adoptions to send me photos of the day they complete their adoption in court. It is always a surprise for me to find an email and photo from them. It makes me grateful for the work I do. These pictures are sweet and inspiring. I got one today from a family I worked with this summer. It’s an adorable young boy looking up to his stepfather, the only father he has ever known and both are wearing ties and all dressed up. All this little boy wanted was the same last name as all of his other siblings. Now he has it. The family made him a big sign with his new name. In another image he holds it grinning ear to ear. I likes the ones with a happy ending. Send me more.
