Additions to the Family

This is a card I just made for our niece and nephew who completed the adoption of three little tikes--all brothers.  They have been fostering the littlest guy for two years after they brought him home from the hospital.  They then had his two older brothers, ages 3 and 7, visited for weekends occasionally. After a year, they began foster the two older brothers full time and started the process to adopt all three!  There was always the fear a biological family member might take all three, but a week ago, on mom Brook's birthday, they all became adopted and a part of our family!  The three boys joined sister Nayla, who they  adopted a year ago and is 6!  There are also three older siblings, two in college and one in high school, so now they are a family of seven!  

I inked up a favorite Paper Inspirations stamp and I love that line of calligraphy stamps!

Here is the inside of my card:

I am sure Matt and Brook will love the card as will the three boys!
