Its done! I'm finally confirmed! This morning was absolutely wonderful. My parents who are not Catholic were there, along with two of their friends. My sponsor Laura and I arrived at exactly the same time.
When I got there Father said that I needed another witness to be there for my signature on my Profession of Faith so I kindly asked one of the nice church ladies to do it for me.
I was a little nervous at the outset when I came forward to kneel but afterward I gathered my voice box enough to read clearly what I had to. Everything went extremely smooth. Afterwards we were all smiles and my nice church lady witness and another were sitting in the pews too. They both congratulated me and one gave me a rosary to take home. I am extremely humbled by her kind gesture.
But I'm even more excited that God gave me the grace to be able to take and complete this journey into the Church. Tonight I have my first official Holy Communion during the Easter Vigil for which I'm sure I'll be beaming.
