Today is National Adoption Day. Yep, not only does adoption get its own month, it gets its own day. Over 6,000 adoption finalizations will be processed today (through the foster system) and many lawyers and judges work for free today. I think it's so exciting that, by now, over 6,000 kids have permanent homes today!!!

We are in Boise right now and we got to visit with Jocelyn's birth family for awhile and go out to dinner and just hang out. It was so refreshing to see all of them. It was fun to be able to compare Jocelyn with her birth sister. We found out that her birth sister started teething at about 7 months, so maybe Joci will start soon. We found out her birth mom is allergic to bees, grapes, and coconut, so now we can watch out for that kind of stuff. It is obvious that they are doing really well and they are happy. It was a joyful reunion. It's fun that we got to do this on National Adoption Day, too.
