Eva Kate's Adoption Day

On January 8th, we got to celebrate the one year anniversary of Eva Kate legally becoming our daughter.  As with Samuel's first anniversary, I breathed a little sigh of relief. According to our attorney, there is little legal precedent for adoptions coming into question after a year of the finalization.  With the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision in just a few days, I thought this would be a good time to post this. Our kids have the brave woman as their birthmom. Their birth fathers both advocated for her to abort these two precious lives. She obviously didn't listen to them, and we are forever grateful that she made the courageous choice to give these little ones the gift of life.  We are so thankful for her belief in the sanctity of human life.

We had a fun evening with Eva Kate. James and I both worked that day, but he brought home St. Louis' finest cupcakes from Jilly's Cupcake Bar for us to have for dessert. Then she had a gift waiting for her in the basement.

We gave her a play kitchen. She and Samuel both love it, and they have already had several hours of fun with it.
 James gave her a silver coin. He a few of them for her to choose from, and she picked out a Chinese Panda.
On the following Saturday, we all went out to lunch at The Tattooed Dog. This place is about twenty minutes west of our house, and I'm glad it's not closer. Or else I'd be tempted to eat there too often. They have delicious gourmet burgers. I ordered kids' meals for Samuel and Eva. The hot dog that came with Eva's was way bigger than what they give you at the ballpark. She didn't come close to finishing it.

The next day. we all went to the art museum. This place is such a treasure. Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Warhol, Chagall, Renoir - to name a few. They had several pieces of Native American art on display too. We got to see the new wing that they just added, where there was a fun contemporary art display.

We are so thankful to God for making you our daughter, Eva Kate!
