A couple of days ago we bought a safe. It cost 150 bucks but it was worth every penny. We bought it to put our most valued "things" in it. After all, if our house were to burn, these are the objects we feel need to be rescued. Obviously, getting all family members to safety would be top priority.
There is nothing of real monetary value going into the safe. Mainly because we don't have anything of significant monetary value. But what is going into the safe is priceless... photos of the kids and official adoption paperwork.
I got thinking about it last week and thought to myself, "What would we do if we lost all traces of the adoption paperwork? Does our agency keep one copy in case such a thing like this happens?" I don't know the answers to these questions, but I knew the solution could be a relatively easy one if we just took a short trip to Wal-mart. So we did. :)
