A Photo that Makes Me Happy-Day 7 Blog Challenge

Some might look at this picture and wonder why it makes me happy. Its just a picture of a  house with a sign on it and some balloons, right? So it appears....

However, the reason why this picture makes me happy is deeper than what you see when you look at it. This is a picture of our house on the very day that we brought our kids home forever. Our most wonderful and awesome adoption worker did this before we got home, and it was a very nice surprise.

My whole life I wanted kids....and finally, a dream came true. Finally. This picture is a picture of my dream coming true and what it looked like as I approached it. When the five of us walked through those doors we were home, together, as a family....forever.

What a great worker! I have pictures of great importance to me because they remind me of one of our "gotcha" days. Congratulations!
