Some of you might remember back in July when I wrote “A Story of a Girl.” It was just a small acknowledgment of how my brave little sister made the choice to make an adoption plan for her little baby boy, Dylan. One of the hardest things a mother could ever do; but ones of the most selfless acts to give her child everything.
Since then I haven’t written much on the topic because… well, my mom said that she was going to write about it on her blog; but hasn’t gotten the chance or the time to do it. I’m not going to take away from my mom telling the story (since she is an amazing writer and could tell the story way better than I) but I did want to give a brief update on how the little guy was doing.
If you have ever been part of an adoption process or been part of the foster care system, you know that once the adoptive parents has full parental control you may not ever get the chance to see that child ever again. It is solely up to the adoptive parents and what they feel is best for the child. Thank God this is not the case for my sister!
My sister and her boyfriend couldn’t have chosen two better people to be Dylan’s adoptive parents. My mom and I believe that it was God planned and perfectly orchestrated by Him! They have been more than wonderful in keeping us updated and sending us pictures. Our family was so blessed to find such a great couple!
As for Dylan, he is doing great! Dylan’s mommy says that he eats great, sleeps great, and loves being with his daddy. Ha… sounds like his cousin Jayden!!! They spent most of the summer at their beach house (lucky), but if he is anything like his birth mommy he won’t be able to get enough of the sun! ;) Here are some resent update photos from Dylan’s amazing adoptive mommy!
Isn’t he just adorable!?
