And We're Off!

Today we are leaving for Seattle, Washington. And we just happened to get a flight with Mike, Judd and Cindy! I already told mike that I will be throwing my peanuts at him if he sits in front of us! :) But this is no ordinary vacation... This weekend we are going to be able to see some things that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Tomorrow is the finalization of the adoption of Aaron and Owen Forsgren. Jessica and Mike have taken care of these two little gems for the last two years and at last they get to be a part of their family legally and eternally. On Saturday we are going to have the opportunity to watch the Forsgren family kneel at the altar in the Seattle Temple and be sealed together for all of eternity. I am so unbelievably happy! Jessica and Mike have been a wonderful example to Tyler and I and we are so proud of them for going through so much to give these sweet boys a life full of love, family and especially the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have witnessed the sealing of a couple before, but I have never been present for the sealing of a family. I think it will be a sweet experience to see children and parents in the temple all together. I look forward to it. Thank you Mike and Jessica for teaching your boys and for letting us be a part of this amazing weekend. We love our family. We are grateful for the good people that surround us and how lucky we are that we have the Gospel in our lives.

What a beautiful post, and what an even more beautiful time for your family! So thrilled for you all. There's nothing quite like being able to witness God's work being done in this life. We're so blessed to have the knowledge we have, and so sooo blessed to be able to sign up for eternity with the ones we love, in THIS life!
