A day to remember

On October 22, our little man officially became, Landon Kebede Snyder. We went to court to take the last step in our adoption process. I was looking forward to this day because everything would finally be official. This day turned out to be so much more amazing than I expected. It just so happened that when we walked into the court house there was a huge celebration going on. We didn't know it but our county was celebrating it's first ever "Adoption Day". There was a large number of families that were there to finalize their adoptions along with us. Most were being adopted out of our foster system and there was at least one other international family. They had all kinds of activities for the kids to take part in: balloon artists, pumpkin decorating, face painting and they had really nice gifts for all the kiddos and parents. We came home with all kinds of free coupons to various restaurants, flowers, and Landon got a really cute stuffed bear. It was just a really nice celebration. It was so amazing to be surrounded by other families that share the same passion that Ian and I do for adoption. There seems to be really amazing things happening in our town as far as adoption goes.
