A year ago today

I remember standing in my kitchen when our case worker told me. My friend was living with us, I was shaking as I stood in her doorway and told her, "Sam's thinking about relinquishing!"

It was a long 24 hours... Our caseworker came out to get me after she and Sam talked. As we walked to her office I asked her, "so, is she going to place J for adoption?" I had to stand there a minute and just breath.

It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Sitting and taking to Samantha about her decision was something I can't describe. It was one of the biggest days of my life, next to getting married and Emma's adoption and sealing.

What did we do to celebrate? Went swimming! One of Emma and Sam's favorite activities!

More to come on our day later...
