Oh this sweet little boy is keeping us busy! We realized we never updated via our blog that our sweet boy is officially a WILLIAMS!!! In October, we received the official letter from the courts that he is forever ours!
There are not a whole lot of next steps other than gathering official documents, and continuing to send monthly updates with pictures to our adoption agency through his first year of life! As we have an open adoption (and are so very thankful that our adoption is an open adoption!), we will continue to communicate with birth parents even after these "official" monthly updates we send through the agency are no longer required.
The biggest next step is continuing to settle in as a family. He's so easy to fall in love with, and he's such a joy. We feel truly lucky and blessed to have him in our lives! His grandparents can't get enough of him, and we LOVE that!!
Since our son is officially ours, our fundraising is coming to a close! Our Gobena fundraising will end on November 30th, and our last donation through Lifesong can be accepted through December 31st. Don't worry if you have fallen in love with Gobena coffee like us! - You can still order it through the Gobena website after November 30th!
THANK YOU for all of the financial support. It has been so helpful to have y'all walk alongside us in this way, and has been such an answer to prayer. We cannot even express how helpful that support has been. Thank you also for the love, prayers, meals, phone calls, texts, visits, gifts, and everything in between! Please keep the love and prayers coming, as adoption will be a lifelong journey for this sweet little man!
