It's Finally Final

Today we finalized Marcus & Zoe's adoption!  Now, not only are they officially members of our family (as seen by the US Gov't), they are also officially US citizens.  What a happy day to be done with the paperwork.  (Hear the huge sigh of relief from Barb?)


  1. You guys are such a great example of people helping out children across the world. You had a choice to have more and more children of your own but instead you helped out 6 more kids along their journeys. I know all about the adoption process and how difficult it can be because of my aunt being infertile. The effort that you guys put in to adopt 6 children over the time and tears it took for my aunt and uncle to adopt two just blows my mind. Thank you for being awesome.

  2. Oh, my, I looked at this photo and tears immediately welled up in my eyes! God bless you all!

  3. Jeff,
    Thank you for your kind words. I need to tell you though, that we are the ones that have been blessed way more than our kids :) God has given us the most amazing children and we get the privilege of parenting them. We could never be doing what we are doing without God's constant grace in our lives.

    Thanks again and god luck on your finals :)


  4. Thank you, Linda & Trudy! We are very blessed!

  5. Congratulations, Johnson's! I agree that it's been a blessing to see all the evidences of the grace of God in your family over time.

    God's blessings to you,
    The Halmar Family

  6. COngratulations! As for our re-adoption, well...I will he happy when the paperwork is done too. I still have to go to staples to copy the (seemingly) hundreds of papers for our file before filling them out. Ugh.

  7. Great looking family! I bet it feels AWESOME to be finished with the paperwork and now the gov't recognizes what you have known in your heart for a long time.



Thanks for visiting. We would love to hear from you!
