Signed sealed delivered.. shes ours!!

Shes ours forever and ever and ever, and no more visits no more paper work (well almost) and no more worrying!!! I huge weight has lifted with this looming over us and we just had the best time today!
We got to the court house early and hung out side for awhile and got some shots, Malia was super tired but was loving running around. Once it was time to go to the court room our SW let us know we were first on the docket!! So once we were told to go in we sat down and the very nice judge explained to us how it would all go down and what she would be asking and let us know that she knew that we are already a family because we love Malia already. She was awesome! So she asked us a few very easy yes answer ?'s and then we were done! It was about 5 minutes and it wasnt stressful at all. Then she let us go up and take pics with her and Malia gave her a couple high fives which was super cute! The judge kept stopping to say how cute Malia was.. I have to agree!
So then we took more pics and hung out with our agency ladies and headed home! I have to say thanks to our social workers they have been so sweet and made things so easy and non-stressful for us so thanks to Donna, Marsha, and Elisabeth for all your hard work!
I have to give a shout out to Tami, she made arrangements for her kiddos so that she could come celebrate and support us today. It was so nice having her there, thanks Tami you have been there every single step of the way and I emotionally would have never made it to this point without you!!
So now we are going to go to Reds tonight to celebrate and then more celebrating this weekend with family and going to the Temple and having her blessed! YEAH YEAH YEAH!!


Pure Joy!

I cannot believe it has been a year since I first looked at those pics and her medical records with you. Unreal. Not that the stress and trauma of getting to this point wasn't awful, but how truly sweet this day was in light of all the heartache you went through.
