Today was a long day and 6 months in the making.
My husband, the girls, and I went downtown to the Juvenile Center for an adoption hearing.
I am officially their momma!
Their bio mom signed away her legal rights to them back in early December, after asking us to start the ball rolling for me to adopt them.
It has been a looong day that started at 7am and I got about 3 hours of sleep. So the details will come later. For now, pictures!!!!!
After the hearing was over, the Judge let the kids sit in his chair and use the gavel.
They were amazed and he was super nice.
Button's turn to hold the gavel.
All of us with the judge after the hearing.
My daughters and me.
I am on cloud 9 right now but my energy is draining. It's been a day full of anxiety, happiness, love, and exhaustion (not to mention 6 months of nerves and endless waiting).
I need a nap.
Awww, what a happy day for you all!ReplyDelete
