Wednesday - Sealing Day!!

  nauvoo 005

Wednesday was a wonderful day!!  It was the day I most looked forward to!

This was the day my family and I entered into the House of the Lord to seal Baby Joy to our family for all eternity.  Truly a wonderful day!  In the Lord's tender mercy, our sealer was also an adoptive parent so this was very special for him as well.  My heart is just so happy!  I wish I was eloquent and could convey my feelings - joy, true and pure joy!

Our family before we entered and when we came out - look at my face.  I was so happy!

Behind this window is the Youth Waiting Room.  This is where the kids waited while we showed the temple workers all our paperwork and got ready for the sealing!

That extra story there is where the sealing room is!  There Joy became a part of our family forever!
