Danilo and Maysa were re-adopted today under the Iowa adoption law. The hearing went great and now off to more paper work...I have to wonder if the paper work and fees will ever end...ugh. Now I will be getting them each a US Birth Certificate with their legal name change along with their Social Security cards...gotta have that for taxes. Maysa is already a US citizen, but I will have to submit for Danilo's certificate of citizenship. It was a great day!
After several years of infertility issues and unsuccessful pregnancy’s, I had my IVF miracle baby Devin, who is now twelve. Since I was a little girl I always had the desire to have lots of children, but things are not always as we plan them. Devin’s father and I split up when Devin was 3 years old and I wanted to have more children, but medically wouldn’t be able to. Adoption was a way that I could give a child a loving and nurturing home and family. My adoption journey began in September of 2005. After several disappointments and a lost referral I switched countries in 2007 from Panama to Guatemala. After what was the most emotional, exhausting and uncertain journey I have ever been on in my life, my family is now complete. Danilo arrived into our family on March 27th, 2008 and Maysa arrived into our family on September 5, 2008. Looking back I could have never made it though this journey of infertility and adoption without the support of other bloggers. My children are my life and I’m so thankful that we are all together as one family!
