Happy Adoption Day!

Jan 22, 2009 – Happy Adoption Day. Today we adopted Sophia Aspen. Oh what a day of Blessings. Thank you Lord for your goodness and grace. We chose Aspen for her middle name as the Aspen trees of Colorado that we love – the unique thing about Aspen trees is they grow in families – when you see one, you’ll see others around it and they share the same root/tuber family. We loved the symbolism of how Sophia connects us all – she completes us as a family and makes us whole as a unit. Thank you Lord! Thank you to the many people who have supported us in this process from our family, church community, friends, social workers, lawyer and Judge!

“tiny little thing, great big blessing.”

Congratulations, Val and Steve!
How exciting to finally have everything complete. The boys must be super excited as well.
We have Aspens in Utah as well, some right in our back yard. Now they will remind me of Sophia and your family.
Your cousin, Marie

What a happy glorious day!! Cogratulations to everyone.
I have a granddaughter whose middle name is also Aspen. Did not know that about the tree tough. Just draws her all the more closely to me.
