Happy Adoption Day to the McGuire family! The McGuire family now happily shares their last name with Kenzie, Kali, Kami, and Ameerah, four sisters who have lived with the McGuires since 2020. This adoption was surrounded in much love and support from so many family members (many from out of state!), friends, and also included the girls' biological grandmother who has remained close to the McGuire family. Kenzie was invited to read a letter she wrote; she finished the letter with “Now that we’ve gotten past everything, I’m so glad to say that Hanna is my official mother and I’m so glad to have all of you in my life”. When it came time to sign the papers, happy tears were shared, grateful to finally make the adoption official!to the beautiful McGuire family!
