This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

Brayan's Birthday

It was about four months ago that we first learned about the four children we are still hoping will be our sons and daughters. Not a lot has changed in that time, but our love for each of the for future Fulltons has grown as we've prepared our hearts and home for them. We are still awaiting their judge's approval of our petition. It's hard to be apart from them while we wait with hearts full of maybes.

Today is Brayan's 4th birthday. There are clothes in his closet, a special quilt on his bed and some legos in the play room just for him. We are glad that he is safe and sound with his siblings and we are excited to meet him face to face some day soon.

We're not sure how much of Brazil and the transition to the US you will remember when you get older, but we are glad that caring people are meeting your needs while we work to come to Brazil to become your parents. Being part of a forever family is a very special experience, and we can hardly wait to share it with you.

Happy birthday darling!
