So, before we made it over to my mom's for Christmas last year,
We stopped in for a visit with Jessica and her family! They spoiled the kids as well!
Jessica got the girls an ice cream maker!
Grandpa MAX giving snuggles!
Great Grandparents Phil and Mary-Jo!
Jessica ( g's beautiful birthmom) & gpa Max ( her dad)
Aunt Morgan opening G's gifts for him!( yep good looks run in this family!)
Opening more gifts!
Gav loved his playmat from Jessica! I know this next baby will get some use out of it as well!
So, as you can see - Open adoption for us WORKS wonderfully! I know it may not for every situation but, in ours it's perfect harmony ( most of the time)!
You can never have too many people that love your kids, your family, you! As long as the people
are healthy ( mentally, emotionally etc.) than i say bring it on! And i do remind the birth families that my KIDS don't NEED lots of presents and one is plenty ( but it never seems to go that way)
We have been blessed and we wouldn't change it for the world! I can't wait for this next baby to get here so Gavin has a sibling close in age and I know this Christmas will be an eventful one filled with love from near and far! Love to you all!
