Yea, I'm copying

My husband wrote an amazing blog about adopting Patrick. Just in case you didn't see it, I've posted it here.

It's amazing to me that he's FINALLY, really and truly OUR kid. He's a Cole. We started praying (and fasting) about this process in January 2006 .God had someone truly amazing in mind for our family and we are so happy.

I wondered if I would feel different about Patrick after we adopted him. I guess it kind of sounds weird, but I do. If it's possible to love someone even more, I do. I feel like I can let any guard down that I didn't even know I had about him. There's no chance that someone can take him away now. He's really our baby boy!

Here's Steven's take on that awesome day.

I am so happy for you guys and I love this post.

Patrick's life and legacy will be a testament to the Lord's goodness and redemption. I cannot wait to see the plans God has for this little guy.

Thanks, Dan. I pray that he will do God's will for his life. He had such an exciting start to life and I think that God will use that.
