Everlasting Adoptions Blog


We wanted to let you know that the adoption is complete! We are so so happy that Astara is finally in the family – legally speaking. She has always been in our family since the day she was born. Now it is legal. She has already been so much a part of our community – traveling with us and being such a beacon of light. I can’t even begin to convey the amount of inspiration she, and our adoption journey, has been to people who meet her. So many people she spends time with tell us how special she is and what an impact she makes on them. We are all so blessed to be together.

We are going to have a party later this month to celebrate and will be flying out her birth mother (and her fiance and his kiddo). They are excited.

Here’s our Easter family pic.

Thank you and your team so much for making dreams come true.
