Jessa's big week!

It's now been a month since I should have done this post, but I didn't want to completely neglect posting about Jessa's big week last month.

We are happy to announce that as of last month, Jessa is officially ours legally and eternally! Hooray!

We had a great experience last month finalizing Jessa's adoption. The judge was great and obviously happy to be taking a pleasant case. :) It's a very cool experience to be able to speak under oath about how you feel about your child. It was a wonderful experience and we were super happy to have the legal technicalities completely behind us.

The following weekend we were able to take both of the kids to the temple. The kids looked like angels and it was such a sweet and spiritual experience! It really is such a miracle and gigantic blessing that the Lord has provided a way for us to have families eternally. I'm so grateful that we've been able to have both of our little ones sealed to us for eternity!

The following day - Valentine's Day - Jared was able to bless Jessa. He gave her such a tender blessing. Jessa's a lucky girl to have such a wonderful daddy and we're all so happy to have Jessa as part of our family.
We love you, sweet Jessa Rose!
