Two years ago, our family officially grew. Patrick Steven Cole was adopted into our family. It was a crazy ride to get to that point, but it makes him even more precious to me.
We were surrounded by friends and family and swore to take care of him. Maggie was behind me as I signed paperwork. She asked me why I was crying. I told her that mommies cry when they are happy. Every picture of me has a smile bigger than my face.
I love that boy so much. I am so glad that he is officially a member of our family.
(And I am forever grateful for Christine Curry's pictures that day).
