Congratulations Auntie NIK. Do they get special permission to walk on your lawn?
This is an awesome thing for your sister to do.

Do they get special permission to walk on your lawn? All eleventy-seven of my nieces and nephews (and their spouses and offspring) have full lawn privileges.
You can call me NIK

I a so happy for your whole family!!! Beautiful!
My brother and sister in law adopted a child from a different country several years ago. Our whole family met them at the airport when they brought her home. Just like you, my heart was full. She wasn't a stranger entering the family, she was ALREADY a part of the family and was just finally coming home.
Continued blessings to your sister, her kids and your whole family.

The story doesn't really matter anymore. Time is a great healer. Life is good.

That is amazing. Your post gave me goose bumps.
For your sister to open her home to kids in need is so selfless. For her to open her heart is priceless. What a gift to the two boys and ultimately, herself.

I used to work for a man who had adopted two children. They celebrated the day that each adoption became official. I thought that was so cool.
Congratulations to your entire family!
