Tomorrow is Jonas’s adoption day! On April 26, 2019, his adoption was finalized in Baltimore County court. He was ours from the very beginning, but he legally and officially become OURS that day.
I love celebrating Adoption Day with our boys. Our tradition is that we go back to the Towson Diner, which is the place we went for brunch after each of our boys’ adoption days, and we eat pancakes for dinner. We sing the Happy Adoption Day song. We also tell the boys their adoption story and look at their life book together. It’s a day of sharing memories and stories as a family.
This is Jonas’s first adoption day since everything was finalized in court, and sadly we won’t be able to visit the Towson Diner for our tradition due to the coronavirus pandemic. We’ll make it a special day here at home; pictures to come!
Happy adoption day, Jonas! We love you.
