Introducing Gia Sky. Now we are Seven.

A (somewhat) silent battle, a love story now being able to be told. We now officially have full custody of my niece Gia. We have been working out all the details and legal documents of our custody since December of last year, and we now officially have full custody.

On December 1st of 2015 we brought my niece home with us and yesterday we finally finalized our custody of her. Her mama will still get visitation and be a part of her life.  We are so excited and blessed to have our niece as a permanent part of our family. We are now Gia's legal parents and she has adjusted to living in our home with our kids as her brothers and sisters, so very well. She has blossomed so very beautiful over the past months in our home, she is happy, smart and loves her ballet class.

It has truly been one of the hardest years of our marriage, our family's life, and our life. Opening your arms, heart, and your safe place, your home to family or stranger in need, is never easy. I have learned to lean in on The Lord more than I ever thought I could really. I have held in how I feel, the pain, the sorrow, the joy, the sweet moments, the victories over these months and it has not been easy for me. Yet, as I write this blog post, that I have long wanted to write, I struggle for the right words to say. How do you explain your heart, all the good and all the pain? I can tell you this after what we have been through this year, any excuse from anyone to not do the right thing and not fight for love, well I don't want to hear it.

Yesterday was a huge day on so many levels. I am thankful that as a family we are all doing good and I feel that we are coming to a good place.

So we now officially have my niece Gia Sky as a part of our everyday family. She was always a part of our family now she is a member of our tribe.



Here is the day she was born. I am so very thankful that I got to see her be born and cut her umbilical cord. Our kids got to hold her, and Luke and I as well.

These pictures I have been waiting to share. She turned 3 Sept 3d!! Happy Birthday our sweet Gia.






















































We love our Angelica, the kids call her Mrs. Bubbles. She is one of our 3 rotating babysitters that are more like family, and she came early and helped us get ready for Gigi's party.

























I love this one. Daddy "helping" her out. lol 



































Thank you to all our family and friends that have stood with our family during this transition.
We love you all!
Love
