Skyler's adoption was finalized on Friday!!!! The whole thing lasted about ten minutes. Our favorite part was when the judge said that the county is no longer responsible for Skyler. We took pictures with the judge and our social worker video taped the whole thing for us. The judge gave all the kids a stuffed animal to take home. Afterwards, we went to breakfast and then to the zoo.

Now, we just have to get Michael's done!!!

What a beautiful message, Dawn! While all it represents is legal paperwork, I remember crying my eyes out to know that Tucker was FINALLY "officially" ours & nothing could ever take him away. In VA where we live, we don't have to go to court, which is more convenient, but they just send you a letter in the mail. So, one day you walk out get your mail after work thinking it is just any 'ole day, and then you see THE letter and suddenly, it's a SPECIAL day! Kind of anti-climatic though after all the waiting that adoption entails, we thought. I think I like what you did better ... makes it into such a special day! One that you will always remember.

I think it is so cute that they gae all the kids stuffed animals and helped capture the day on video! C*O*N*G*R*A*T*S* to Skyler!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Michael is next ...
