Hi! Our names are Shannon, Mark and Summer McDade. We are a family of three wanting to expand our family through adoption.

Summer's Srk Graduation

Summer graduated from kindergarten at FACS yesterday. Mark and I both took off work to go to her 9:30 ceremony. Summer had her Mimi, Poppy, Nana, Pockey Dey, Aunt Angie and Kate there to support her. Summer was so happy to see all of them there. The program was really good. They did many songs and then they got their little diplomas. So cute!!

Summer looked so pretty. She was so worried about the outfit that she was wearing under the white robe. She didn't want anything to show through it. So we had to go shopping the day before the ceremony to find something that she liked. Crazy. However, we found something that worked perfectly. I curled her hair up in the back. She looked so pretty with her hair curled up, her purple glasses on and in her white robe with the cute hat. When I first saw her in the line waiting to go into the Chapel I started to cry a little....

Here are a few pictures of Summer's Srk. graduation day

After the graduation was over with Mark and I took Summer out to lunch at the American Cafe. We had so much fun together. I hope we always will even when she get older!!!

I can not believe that she has grown up so fast. It seems like yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital. Man time flys. I am so happy to have her as my daughter. I am so blessed that she calls me mommy. I will always cherish the sweet moments that we have together. Like after tucking her into bed she will call for me about three times to come back to her room for another good night kiss or a tickle. Sometimes I am tired and I just want her to go to sleep, but I do love it when she wants just one more hug from me and another kiss. Or just sitting on the couch cuddling watching a movie.
I love being with her and most of all I love being her mommy!!!!

Had such a great day with my little graduate!!! Summer you did it!! First grade here I come!!!'
