Rebekah has held many titles - Miss California (twice!), Mrs. International, singer, volunteer, teacher, daughter, wife .... And as of September 17th, her newest role and most treasured role to date became official. Now, she is Mom. September 17th, 2010 will forever be known as Adoption Day in the Negrete household. On that day, Gigi and Ellie officially became Negretes and Greg and Rebekah officially became their parents. Though anyone who knows the family would tell you that Gigi and Ellie were Negrete's from the moment Greg and Rebekah first embraced them as their foster parents. The paperwork was just a technicality ... but a very important and much prayed for technicality! Though there were many ups and downs on their road to becoming a family, Greg and Rebekah's faith remained steadfast. Gigi and Ellie are blessed to have Greg and Rebekah as their Dad and Mom and Greg and Rebekah are blessed to have Gigi and Ellie as their daughters. In the end, everything worked out just as it was supposed to. Now they are truly, officially, forever a family.
Greg and Rebekah, thank you so much for allowing me to join in the celebration of this joyful time in your lives. You are both inspirations and your girls are just precious. I hope you enjoy your photos and I am so excited to see what is in store for your family in the future!
