Meet Joseph Parker Colvin
Joey is now officially a Colvin! On April 10, we sat in front of a judge, were asked if we wanted to have Joseph as our son, and both of us exclaimed "YES!" I started to tear up thinking about Kirsten and how much I wish I could call her and tell her the wonderful news. I'm sure she was there in spirit. The judge was so thrilled for us. After sitting through custody battles and bad situations, I'm sure having a happy adoption makes his day a bit easier. He was happy to join in with the picture and I had Robby hand off Joey.
We are so thrilled that this part of the journey is over. All those home visits, endless paperwork, worrying, all is replaced by sheer joy. I have definitely felt a change in our home. I always knew Joey was mine, but there is something special about sharing a last name. I love that this is so official now. Joey is even more giggly than normal. I don't know if that's just a coincidence, but I like it.
For now, we aren't quite sure how or if we will grow our family further. I would LOVE to have more children in our home, but we just don't know what will happen. For now, I am just enjoying being a mom to 2 amazing children and trying not to dwell on the what if's. I don't think we would ever say no if a situation landed in our laps, but I don't know how active we will be in searching for one. But life is very good and I am in LOVE with my baby boy and little girl.
