Wedding Celebration

We got a picture with our handsome boy.
Jadden's Buddies, Brent (Grooms Man), Elmer (Groom), Stacey (Best Man) and Jadden ( Junior Best Man)
Elmer, Wanda and Jadden
Our Family.
We have finally become a family of Five.
You ask why I would you say that. Well, if you have read my post through out the last couple of years, you will have noticed that I had a teen pregnancy, and Elmer is Jadden's birth father.
We have gone through some very rocky moments, but all together it's been a Blessing.
Jadden has been the #1 reason we stuck it out and push through our selfish feelings. We decided shortly after Sheldon and I got married that we wanted this to work and Elmer was with us 100%. While Jadden was growing up, we were too. Funny, the way it sounds, but that's the truth. We were all very young at the time, but we were all leaning on God and He pulled us through.
Jadden has been able to grow up with his whole family surrounding him and supporting him through his life. He has a ton of people loving him and praying for him as he has been growing. And he seems to be doing great with it.
When he was very young, we told him that Elmer, Jadden and Sheldon and I are a family and it will stay that way all his life. Now we have a family of Five. I can't believe that I finally have women to hang out with. Our Christmas and any other event we celebrated together was me with three boys. Boys = sports! Not the greatest for me, but it worked.
Wanda is an amazing person. I love to see her strength and acceptance towards our family. She is very quiet, but she brings so much joy to all of our lives. Again, I feel so very Blessed as to how this has worked out. I know that we will be able to share our lives together and both be Blessed with a great relationship.
So that's my story. And I have to give God all the Glory! We couldn't have done it with out Him.
