Surrounded by our family and closest friends we popped open a bottle of champagne and toasted panel’s decision to match us with the children we longed for.
My husband and I wanted to mark the occasion, as a couple, as a family, we wanted to share this moment and to celebrate. We decided to do an alternative to a baby shower and hold an ‘adoption party’.
We shared a picture of our daughters, it was such a proud moment. We were given presents and cards for our new family and we were touched by people’s kindness, generosity and warmth.
I am glad we took this opportunity to share what was happening in our lives, a time for fun, laughter, to pause and be thankful.
