It's official: Marcus is one of us!

Marcus officially became a permanent member of our family today! We are overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness!

His adoption was finalized at court in Kansas. We did not travel back for the hearing, but had the privilege of meeting the judge six weeks ago while we were in Wichita. We took this photo to mark the occasion.

What a gift he is to our family!


  1. How wonderful, what a joy! I thank the Lord, and Marcus' birth mum for choosing you to bring up this beautiful boy!

    Thank you too Grant and Brooke for seeing the need of this child - I know he will be a blessing to your family (I know I was when my parents fostered and adopted me).

  2. Yay! Congrats!!! I was hoping to see his post today after running into you :) so happy for you guys! - Tiffany Acuff

  3. Congratulations!!!! In our state it takes 6 months. So that is such a blessing.

  4. It is nice to see an article dedicated to this important topic. Thank you for sharing.
