Introducing Shawn

06Feb10

For just over a year, Mandy and I have been working with Georgia’s Division of Family and Children Services and Alabama’s Department of Human Resources to get this little guy into our house.  After a year of paperwork being misplaced, details being lost, and two caseworkers working through the courts, we brought him home today.

Adoption has always been something we’ve wanted to do and today we are in the first real stage of the process.  Thanks to all the people who have been praying for us and we ask that you continue to do so!  Shawn is a happy, friendly kid who always has a smile on his face and looks like he’ll transition quickly and smoothly.  Thankfully, he had amazing foster parents who loved and spoiled him just like we will.

Here’s a few pictures from us arriving at my parents’ house.
