It's Official!!!

Case closed...Boston is now officially ours. We went to court this morning. Our lawyer was great. He works often with LDS Family Services, so he knew everything to ask and it went really smoothly. I wasn't really too nervous, because I was pretty sure everything would go well, but you never know for sure. It was so great to hear as the jugde was officially granting Boston to be ours. I got a little teary-eyed, but it was still good. Our caseworker, Marissa, took the stand first. Zariph and I sat at the table in the front and got to answer our questions from the table. Our lawyer just verified when we were married, where we lived, if we loved Boston like he's ours, and if we intend on raising him and paying for everything for him, etc. All we had to say was "yes".

Then after we got home I wanted to take some pictures of Boston. So, I pulled out the backdrop and tried to get some cute ones. He's so into rolling right now, it was hard to get him to stay in one place.

He's such a cutie, we're so glad to have him as part of our family!

Yeah, what a great day. I'm sure it makes this all complete. I remember our court experience, although very different and a lot more grueling, I remember the moment they said the adoption would be in the best interest of the children. A warm feeling came over me as I new Heavenly Father planned all of it. Thanks for the update.
