Last friday was an exciting day at FLS - placement day! These are the days that we work for...days that remind us why we do, what we do! Deanne put it best when she described placement day as "the ultimate celebration of God's faithfulness to a birth family, an adoptive family, and a precious child." I couldn't have said it better.
The Godparent Home was adorned with baby blue decorations and photos of a tiny miracle - Jesse Taylor (3 weeks old). For the birth mother, Chrizar, some of the sweetest moments took place just before placement. She had an oppurtunity to visit with the baby and make sure that he was dressed perfectly to meet his new parents. Many pictures were taken and she enjoyed her alone time with the adorable Jesse. The adoptive family, Craig and Marti, gathered with their five-year-old daughter, Chloe, and their extended family in nervous anticipation of meeting the newest member of the family. Once Jesse Taylor entered the room in Chrizar's arms, everyone is captivated by the baby and the quiet strength of his birth mother, an amazing young woman whom we all have grown to love and adore. This is a celebration.
Feel free to look at the pictures on the right of the blog. Congratulations to Craig, Marti, and Chloe! Chrizar, you really are an amazing young lady
