Legally Ours!

We had our adoption hearing at 9:30 this morning. Grandpa & Grandma Vest were there as well as Grandpa & Grandpa Luthy. It was all very formal. Barry and I had to be sworn in and then we were questioned by our lawyer. He asked us to state our names, address, and things of that nature. The judge reviewed our petition for Owen's adoption after that and then stated our petition was granted. Owen was pretty good but at the end he was acting tired. He hasn't been taking his naps for as long and often as he should. Anyway, we are so happy and relieved to have Owen now legally ours. He has brought so much joy and happiness to our lives. Now we just need to make him eternally ours. We hope to see as many of you as possible for next weekend.

  1. Well, if Barry would have smiled that would have been a great picture. I am happy for you guys, this has been a great experience for the whole family to go through with you both. See you next weekend!!

  2. Many congratulations to you both. Anybody who looks at Owen can immediately tell that he's beyond loved, adored, valued, and cherished. He's a little doll.
