New Grand Children

Today is National Adoption Day and our family grew by three. My daughter Rhea and her partner Tonya adopted three children that have been in their foster care for awhile. They join the three children that were adopted on National Adoption Day two years ago. Kennedy is the biological sister of their son Malachi. Josiah and Jonah are siblings. Jonah told me today that he had been waiting to be adopted for nine years. Kennedy, 18 months

Josiah, 7 years

Jonah, 9 years



This last picture is of Rhea and Tonya and family posing with the Judge that signed the adoption papers. Tonya is holding Kennedy. The other children are Jonah, Malachi, Gabriella, Sharayah and Josiah.

What a beautiful family. I don't know who is luckiest - the children or the parents or the grand parents.

Congratulations on having more instant grandchildren! It's wonderful that they have found a permanent home!

Mom-
I dont know about the two ladies but the kids are adorable. Thank you for posting our story and pictures. The close ups of the three are fabulous-thank you for being there and sharing the best Christmas present ever imaginable(Please remind me of that in about three years as Jonah enters pre-adolescence)
