Adoption is final
Well today it becomes official
I adopted my girlfriend's daughters
and we started the process to have another
to make our family whole.
Planning to move to NC this summer
everything is falling into place
Hopefully my health continues improving
so a healthy baby I can give my family
It won't matter if our baby is black or white
and it won't matter if it's a boy or girl
names we have been picking out already
and soon a wedding date will be set
because from the very depths of my being
I know the pain from my past has made me
who I am today
I've endured more than most my age
and I'm still standing
I'll be the best wife and mother I can
never giving up when things are rough
ready to give it one more try
to have a baby of my own
knowing that I'm not alone
and if I'm unable to carry
I'll still be a mommy
because this adoption is final.
Author's Notes:

My girlfriend and I went to court today and finalized me adopting her two daughters. I can't begin to explain these feelings because it's a huge honor to have a mother willing to share the joy of motherhood with her. I can't wait to see what the future step is marriage.
