We are officially and legally a forever family now! The hearing went really well and you could tell that the judge really liked this part of her job. The whole thing in front of the judge took about 5 minutes. She even gave Samuel a stuffed toy boat, which he loves. Our attorney gave us Samuel's original birth certificate and he sent off yesterday to Georgia to get his new birth certificate. We should have it in a month or two. We got out of the courthouse a lot sooner than we thought so we went out for brunch. All in all, it was a great day.
Here a a few shots from the day.
Waiting to go into the court room. A lady that was there for her finalization took these pictures for us.
