One More Step

November 22, 2011 at 8:44pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

The paperwork is done. The court date is set. The Wilsons will officially be a family of five on December 22, 2011.

When I first saw the email from our attorney it felt like just another step in the process. But now that it has settled in for a few minutes I’m not sure whether I should smile, cry, or go to the bar down the road and buy a round for everybody. I was awfully nervous we wouldn’t be able to wrap things up in 2011.

It has been a long, difficult journey for the two boys; for Robbie, as he went from only child to middle child; and for The Missus and me as parents and spouses. There’s a lot of road ahead, but there’s light at the end of *this* tunnel and that’s what I’m thankful for right now.

So far I haven’t said a lot about the boys here or in other public venues in order to protect their privacy as foster children. I will introduce them—complete with new names—on the 22nd.

Many blessings to your family this holiday season. There is no better gift to give a child than a safe, loving home.
