Happy Day!


Monday was a very happy day for our entire family.

My niece Amanda and her husband Ted adopted Kayli!



They had been waiting over a year to receive the happy news that the adoption would take place.



Lots of relatives including her new cousin Bea went to the courthouse for the official ceremony



Can you see how happy Amanda is?  
She has loved this child for so long and now she is officially her mother!

Bea gives Kayli a big hug after the ceremony.



Kayli, her mother and father, and her very happy grandmother.

Welcome Kayli Edith to the family!  

You are surrounded by love!


(Thanks to my niece Trisha for the pictures!)

What a little cutie!! I am thinking that is one lucky little girl to be adopted by your niece and her hubby. Wishing them all the happiness in the world. Though it looks like they have it already!!
Beautiful.
