Last week we took Samuel out for pizza to celebrate the day we finalized his adoption. Most people seem to celebrate “Gotcha Day,” but since Sam was placed with us at birth, we decided to celebrate his finalization date instead.

This is the first year we did anything, but I’m excited to keep the tradition in coming years. My parents always made me feel so special (did you know I’m adopted too?), but it’s a lot of fun to be able to see it from the parents’ eyes this time.

5 years. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long!

Spread the love

  1. Congrats, Melody!

    I often wonder if we’ll celebrate Mac’s coming home day or adoption day… he came home @ 10 months old… who knows when we’ll finalize!

  2. Melody: Didn’t know you were adopted!!! How cool is that!!! Even though my Caleb was placed w/us when he was two days old, we have always celebrated their adoption hearing as their “Gotcha Day”. It’s been a yearly occurance, w/only two weeks between the two of them for the boys. Typically I’ll made a cake or cupcakes and maybe get a little gift – nothing too huge, but something they can remember as “their day”. Thanks for sharing!!!
