Hey there! This blog post is a very special one for me. Today my husband and I finally adopt our son! Those of you who have followed me for a while may remember that in October of 2015 we became foster parents with the hopes of adopting. We were placed with our son in November of 2015. He is the most amazing little boy and we have been praying for 21 very very long months that he would be ours forever. Today he will finally share our last name. Anyone who has adopted through foster care knows the stresses, fears, and worries we have had for almost 2 years. We have been so blessed by our baby boy (...I guess he's a toddler boy now!) ! When we found out that I wouldn't be able to have kids we were devastated. Traditional adoption was far out of our finances and we thought we would never have a family. But there are so many kids in the foster care system that need loving homes and we are so happy that he is ours!! We don't have a lot, but we have a lot of love for him!
Anyway, here is the card I have planned for today!
Follow your dreams - it means so much to me. I dreamed of having a family and it seemed like a unicorn dream a few years ago...but now I have my son forever!
I watercolored my unicorns and clouds with Gansai Tambi watercolors and added a bunch of shimmer with my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen.
I created my background with Simon Says Stamp inks and rainbow sparkle embossing powder and the Concord & 9th Triangle Turnabout stamp. This stamp is a-maz-ing! Seriously! Quick and easy backgrounds are my favorites!
That's all! This card was really quick, but I think it's super cute! See you soon!
