Hurrah! They're ours! Finally and officially ours! We went to the courthouse this morning and had the boys' final adoption hearing along with six other adopting families. What a joyful morning for so many people! And now, Moses and Augustine Faires have birth certificates on the way saying that they belong to their Mama and Papa forever!

We have so much for which to be thankful!

Taking time to admire the pretty ceiling at the courthouse.

Already favoring one another, don't you think? :)

Oh yes, and sweet sister Queen Bea was there.
She is loving having these little playmates at home to dress up. And they adore her.

Praising the Lord with the growing Faires family today!

"For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved."
Romans 8:22-24
