So I’m SUPER excited and beyond words happy today.
We started the adoption process today for my husband to adopt Makenna. I’ve mentioned it a little bit on my “Meet Makenna” page, but John, my husband, is not Makenna’s biological father.
Makenna’s biological father wasn’t involved in her life at all until 2007 when she went for a visit to Colorado to see him.
But now that John and I are married and have been for over a year now we just think it’s right. We’ve always talked about it and John has always been passionate about Makenna having his last name. So we printed out everything and started the whole process today. Hopefully it won’t be a horrible experience and it’ll be fast and uneventful. I really don’t want to be going to court every month dealing with crap and fighting over this and that.
I’ve had someone tell me in the past, “at least all my kids with have the same daddy” and of course it annoyed me but psh, I never let that crap get to me. I’m definitely not the first and only woman that has kids from separate fathers. I’m in no way shape or form a “whore”. Makenna’s biological father was my boyfriend at the time, we didn’t mean to get pregnant… but it happened and I will NEVER regret it or the decisions I made to keep the pregnancy going. My daughter is the most beautiful little girl in the world because she is part me.
This same person has even said she wishes I have problems with this pregnancy and miscarry ! What a horrible, low, despicable person, right?
John is her dad and Makenna needs his last name.
Let me clarify though, Makenna DOES NOT have her biological father’s last name, she has my maiden name as her last name. I didn’t even put his ass on her birth certificate!
