The Adoption

August 12, 2016

Post by: Kaitlyn, 15

It was January 13
I was sleeping in late
I didn’t have to go to school
I had a court date
I was going into Boston
On the trolley, green line
I was scared and excited
Both at the same time
I walked up the street
To the courthouse just on time
Once inside I waited, all aside
Then it was my turn to be called inside
It was finally my turn
So I walked right in
And signed the papers
To let my life begin
Ten years in foster care had gone by
With my foster mother by my side
Now I am adopted
All the papers have been signed
Walking out of the courthouse
With a smile on my face
I said to myself
It was definitely worth the wait

Thank you for sharing this moment with us. I know your foster parents feel it was worth the wait as well.
