Adoption Day!

Introducing Gavin Thomas Senters!

When we were pregnant with Brooklyn and tossing around name ideas, if she was a boy the name Gavin Thomas stuck with us.  We loved the name Gavin, and Thomas is Ryan's middle name, his dad's name and the name of BOTH his grandpas.  I guess when CPS called us and asked if we could come pick up a "Gavin Thomas", we should've known that God had always planned for this baby boy to be a part of our lives forever.

So today with our hearts full of joy, our eyes filled with tears and our supportive family around us . . . we changed Gavin's last name to become his middle name, and he will now forever be a Senters.  We thank Jesus for the blessing he is to our family, and for the privilege we have to raise him.
