Today we celebrated MacMillan’s 2nd Family Day! The 2nd anniversary of his adoption day. The day we were legally his parents. The Lord has truly blessed us with a wonderful son and a great relationship with his birth family. We went out to lunch at Tijauna Flats since MacMillan loves chips. He had nachos and […]
