I want to include this on our blog because it was such an honor to be a part of something so special for our friends’ family.
The Carlins have been our friends for a few years now, and we have watched them go through foster training, then receive 2 children and adjust from having 4 kids to having 6. What a journey! It was awe-inspiring to attend their official adoption day. It was held in a conference center because they were officiating 80+ adoptions at one time. What a celebration! If you ever get a chance to attend something like this, do it. You’ll be glad.

The judges are reading off the charge to the Carlin family and they are saying “I do!” as a family in response.
That night, they had a fabulous party to celebrate, complete with cake and outdoor movies! They even had a slideshow of their journey over the past year. So much fun!
