Default Adoption Journey

Many of you have been along for the ride, offered advice, encouragement and prayers along the way.

For those donít know, Tyler was 7 when his mom and I started dating, 9 when we got married. His biological father, though somewhat minimally involved, has never made an effort to be a father. So, it has been Tyís desire for many years that I adopt him. His biological father being the character he is would never agree to relinquish parental rights.

Well, at 19 Tyler decided as an adult that he wanted me to legally adopt him...tomorrow at 0900, he legally becomes what he has been all along, my SON!

One of the most humbling experiences of my life. Thanks for following along

That has got to be an amazing feeling! To know that you have been such a positive influence in someone’s life, that they’d make a decision that has that much meaning. Good on y’all! Congrats

Congratulations on officially being exactly what you've always been....obviously a great dad. I know how much I love my dad and I didn't even get to pick him. This boy got to pick and he chooses you. That's love.

Speaking as someone who was adopted that’s amazing and it’s the greatest feeling and I will forever count my blessings for the parents the good lord gave me! And now that I’m married I have a stepson who will forever be my little man and I’m sure you’ve always known this but we’re not the step fathers, were the fathers that stepped up!

My "Dad" has raised my sister and I since we were 2 and 8. Our biggest regret 28 years later is we never asked to be adopted. He is out dad! He is our everything. I wouldn't/couldn't ask for a better father! He is the PopPop to 5 grandkids now and is amazing with them.

My sister text me about 4 months ago asking to do it finally. I think we are going to eventually she just has to figure everything out with us both being married with kids and what not!

That is awesome of you to step in and be what so many of us didnt have with our donors.

As the father of two adopted kids, I can personally state there is no better decision you can ever make than the one you have. I cannot imagine loving my two any less if they were mine genetically. We celebrate adoption day every year at our house. Congratulations to you and your family.
