Another Milestone

After the final judgement was entered with the judge
Today we made it official here in the good ole' State of Florida and our county. Katie's adoption was officially recognized here and a Florida birth certificate will be issued. The judge was very nice and gave us this photo op. We shared the day with our wonderful friend's, The Przelomski's as well as another great family in our FCC Chapter. The attorney that handled this for us is also an adoptive parent with a child from China. His wife and daughter came as well so while we were waiting to have this case heard by the judge the four children hung out together. After 2 hours of waiting it became a toss up as to who was more frazzled; us or the kids. When the judge offered us candy at the end of the hearing Marc sarcastically told her that he would have preferred breakfast...love that man of mine :)

Wow, that was fast!! We have to wait for our 6 month post placement to readopt (anytime now, we just had our SW visit yesterday).

P/S I think your picture is a little large because it moved your profile down.
