Legally and Lawfully...

A Family!

This morning we went to the courthouse downtown to finalize Nathan's adoption. It was wonderful to walk out thinking "It's official!".

I will post more of the day's story later but I first wanted to celebrate our blog going public! Hooray!

So how about a giveaway?

How about a book? Or even better, a book about adoption? :)

My fabulous friend Ashley wrote this book and she sent me some to give away to YOU! She was even sweet enough to sign the inside cover!

Reading this story the first time made me teary because it matches our story to adopt Nathan so much. I hope you will enjoy it!

I have two copies to giveaway and you can win! All you have to do is leave a comment offering congratulations to us (haha) or something about your own families. Easy enough right?

I'll close this tonight at midnight- it's a short giveaway - and I'll announce the winners tomorrow.

Good Luck!


  1. Congrats.. I just wanted to let you guys know that I think the world of you guys. Heavenly father couldn't have sent Nathan to any better parents. I still strongly believe he was meant to be your baby. I can't thank you guys enough for all the love and support you have shown my daughter and I. Most birth families don't have the bond that we have. And I am truly grateful for the bond we have.. To this day people still make judgements and comments about me placing my second child for adoption but he is FAR better off you as his parents than with me. I love you guys. Again congratulations :D hugs and kisses.

  2. Congratulations you guys! Seriously am sooooo happy for you!!! I hope to make it on Sunday, and we really need to get together SOON!

  3. We've been thinking about you ALL day. Such a milestone and a blessing--with only better things to come this weekend! Wish we were there....for the millionth time. ;) Love ya!

  4. Blast--pretty sure my comment went under Ryan's name. It was really me--Janelle. Congrats!

  5. Congrats! That is so awesome that Nathan is yours Legally and Lawfully!

  6. Having gone through this 3 times myself, I really do understand your feelings--totally grateful for the blessing you have been granted. Ours weren't open adoptions (not heard of 40 years ago). I have great admiration for the way people handle open adoptions. All I can say is "I'm so very happy for your family."

  7. I Love the Holt's, I love finalization! GO YOU!!! WOOT!
