Typically for us Saturdays are made for being lazy, but today is an exception I have to get up, get dressed and get to Hastings in Wenatchee for my first book signing ever! It's crazy to believe that this day is actually here. I've dreamed of it for so long. To be a published author, to realize my dream. I mean I'm not best seller, not a well known author, nor do I even have more than one book out... yet. This is my beginning! This is my start and this will be probably one of the most memorable signings of my life.
But today isn't just my beginning, it is a beginning for hundreds of forever families around the country as they celebrate National Adoption Day. Today is the day hundreds of children have dreamed of, a day they are counted as part of a family, it is a day moms and dads have dreamed of where they can actually, officially call themselves "mom" and "dad".
Today is a good day for beginnings!
Our local Adoption Day celebration is at Foothills Middle School from 11:30-2. Last year our family was a part of the festivities. It is a fun time, with activities and entertainment for kids of all ages, food, mascots, and of course the officiating of forever families. If you have the energy to get out of your comfy jammies today I invite you to hop over to Foothills and watch the festivities AND THEN... skip right on over to Hastings and get your copy of "Waiting on Justin" I'll be there from 3-5 signing away!
