Yesterday my wife and I became the legal guardians of a little girl named Makayla. We were about to start the process necessary to adopt a child when we learned that my niece's health was such that she couldn't care for her little girl. That was a couple of months ago. Since then we have been jumping through the necessary hoops to take that little into our home. We've made no secret of our wish to adopt her formally, but circumstances being what they are, that will have to wait until later. Not long, we hope, but later. Right now we are just very happy to have her!
