Adoption of Becky


Becky came to live with our family in the late 70's. Her Bio-dad's family is from Panama & Jamaica, and her Great Grandmother was Indian. Her Bio-mom's family is Caucasian/Jewish. She found her family not to long ago. She went with my mom to meet them all.  My dad and I hadn't met them until yesterday. Here are some pics of an Awesome day. We had a great time increasing our family unit!

Peterson Family said...

I love that you share family. I love that there is no "hers" or "mine" that it is "ours". What an awesome family you have!

I just love your family! Beautiful!

What great pictures!! I love sharing family with family. When I was in Idaho this summer I met my Uncle's wife's mom, and readily took a liking to her and starting jokingly referring to her as "grandma" even though I had no blood relation to her.

Thanks for grabbing my button!

I love the "we share family" part and the picture of your mom and son is priceless! Thanks for your encouragement on my post today! I sent you an email last week; no worries at all if you haven't gotten to it yet, but in case it got lost in the shuffle of me sending or you receiving, my email is

Well that had to be an amazing day, how cool!

And how cute are those baby pictures? Love the pink fat yarn bow - I spent half my childhood with one of those in my hair.
