So you know what this means, right?



PHOTO REMOVED - SORRY

yes, that's right, Lucy is legally ours!!!! The finalization hearing went well - more questions than I was expecting but our magistrate was super nice, my family was there, and two of my dearest friends also came out (one was our attorney!).

Get your fill while you can - I'll either password protect this or remove the photo soon :-)

Yay!! That's wonderful news. I'm so happy for you.

It seems the blogosphere is just full of good news lately.

Sorry about you not knowing about the questioning. I really thought I had sent that question page along, or maybe I thought it was getting too snotty to say things, since you were represented by counsel! ;-)

Or, I just plain forgot, with a side of the other stuff!

BTW, he pretty much asked what he asks most "easy" adoptions. The last one I helped on required some more invasive questions about finances because the adoptive father was on disability.

I'll send the "common" question list for Lily's hearing some time for the fun of it. But just you watch, the Magistrate won't ask you anything because that magistrate has already met you guys!
