To Adopt: To choose or take as one's own.
That's what we've done.
No, we haven't been hiding anything from all of you for months and months while we made a quick trip to Isbeckastan a few times and met our soon to be newborn baby boy and got all the workings layed out to bring our little bundle home and raise it as our own.
We just stopped and allowed a young woman to fall into our laps and took the opporunity to make her our own.
This beautiful young woman has a story. A story of redemption and love and a story of heartache and a misrepresented view of a family. A story that I see will one day be her story to tell to any who will listen the value of every child...young or old...parent or no parent.
But for now, and for who knows how long...this beautiful young lady is officially (or not, but who's counting) and Overstreet.
The kids call her "Sissy"...makes the dog a little confused, but you know...she'll live.
See...she fits right in!
We love you, Deborah Grace...
