This week I had a long hoped and prayed for celebration become reality.
My granddaughter, Maya, has been in foster care for three years. During these foster care years, she fortunately has always been with family but her family did not have any legal claim to her.
Yesterday my daughter in law and my oldest son signed off on adoption papers. Maya is no longer a ward of the state but a permanent member of a loving family, our family.

I celebrate this long held wish being fulfilled. I celebrate the end of the constant worry about Maya being removed from Hillary and David’s care. And I celebrate Hillary and David who have given this gift of a permanent loving family to Maya and to her grandparents.
Wishing your family permanent love,
