10 years ago today the judge said Megan was ours forever. She was already ours in our hearts.
No it wasn't this day:
No, Adoption Day is the day that we went to court. Megan was 14 months old. I still remember that little bald baby running around the courtroom while my parents took videos and the bailiff played with Megan while the judge did her judging business. There was such a sense of relief after that day. I knew Megan couldn't be taken away after that.
I feel so Blessed that I am Megan's Mom. Even when she is beating the crap out of her sisters and sassing me. I wouldn't change a thing. Not one thing. I love that kid.
I often think of Megan's BirthMother and hopes that she knows how grateful we are to have her in our lives. I don't really care the reason that she chose to place Megan. It doesn't matter to me. I just know that because of her choices I got to be a Mom. For that I will always hold a special place in my heart for her.
