Our latest roundup of births and adoptions! Congrats to the happy families!
Congratulations to James and Mike on finalizing the adoption of their son, Matthew!
Matthew joins big sister Noel as part of James and Mike's forever family. The dads adopted Noel when she was 2 (she's now 12), and Matthew came to them in August. On March 8, 2018, the 5-year-old's adoption was finalized.
"It's hard to put into words the feeling of adoption day because it's an emotional time," said James. "We're overjoyed to be adding to our family; relief for the process to be finalized, and absolutely terrified because we are now responsible for the health and happiness of another human!"
Congratulations to this family from Roseville, California!
