Oh Happy Day!
About 5 minutes before 9am, Manny fell asleep. Then it was time for court. The attorney asked us a few basic questions about our names, address, how long we've been married, if we understand the legal implications of this and why we want to adopt Manny. (The Judge had a tear in her eye by the time we told our answer about why we wanted to adopt him.) The whole thing is about 5 minutes.
Quick trip down to get a copy of the judgment so we have legal proof he is our son. (His birth certificate will arrive in about 4-6 weeks.)
Today was a GREAT day! Not every day you get to add a new child into your home.
We are truly, truly blessed.
