Thankful Day 18

I am thankful for Eternal Families.
November 18, 2006 Bug was sealed to Bryan and Me in the Spokane LDS Temple.
It was the most beautiful ceremony.
Even though Bug cried the whole time.
We arrived an hour before the ceremony. Met with the Temple President. Showed him all the adoption paper work, and our family history information.
Then Bug went with some friends tell it was time for him to come into the sealing room. Our friends got Bug dressed in his white jumper. Bryan and I got dressed in our white temple clothes, and headed to the Sealing room. The room was filled with all of our friends who had been with us during the long journey to become a family.
Then Bug was brought into the room. He was very quite. He didn't recognize us at first wearing our temple clothes, but once he did he cried and climbed into our arms.
We kneeled around the alter in the middle of the room and held hands. Bugs hand was placed upon Bryan and my hands, and the Sealer said a few words and pronounced us a Family.
It was a very quick ceremony but a very meaningful one.
We are stuck with each other for all eternity.
You can watch a short video of pictures inside of several Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Temples. Enjoy.
