Few people can point to an exact moment in time in which their lives are inextricably changed forever. For Manu, this was not that moment. That moment occurred nearly eleven months ago when we first met and knew we were to be a family. Today, December 10th, 2009 is simply the culmination of two years of hope, frustration, joy and elation. Today is the day that Manu officially and legally becomes part of our family. Forever and ever he will be our son, and no one will ever be able to take him away. Though the journey was long, hard and expensive, he has given us far more in return. The adoption process has changed our lives forever. We are different people than we were just a few years ago, and we look forward to who we will we become, as we journey through life with our son, Manu Alexander Yeast.
