What a BIG moment for me personally. One of the most memorable in this whole process. Frankie’s adoption day. Dave said it best that day, “What was already family is now official.”
Jeff Hall took our pictures when we first arrived home in Greenville. He captured our first family photo’s and it only seemed fitting that he as there as we ended this part of our journey. If only I could book him now for Frankie’s Graduation and Wedding (which is already pre arranged with a sweet little Haitian girl named Bella from PA.) 🙂
These are a few of my favorite:
My Sweet Boy on His Very Special Day:
Waiting BEFORE the hearing..
With The Judge:
Celebration Shot Afterwards:
First Official Legal Family Picture:
We had a Canvas for the day that everyone signed that Frankie will always have to remember this special day.
I will never forget when the Judge announced his name: Franklin Joseph David Rhodes.
Our Family is OFFICALLY and NOW COMPLETE.

So happy for you and your new family. I pray that God will bless little Frankie and he will grow up to love Jesus. I know he will be taught about Him. It is wonderful that he gets a new home with people so loving and caring. Adoption IS a wonderful thing. My son John and his wife Shelly want to adopt. They have two of their own, but they want the joy of adopting one that needs them and their family. Please pray for them that if God is in it, He will make a way for this to happen.
Congratulations again!! I am very happy for all of you! Frankie looks so handsome! Well, the whole family is looking lovely! Officially together forever.
