Happy Adoption Day!

Today was another big day in our house. It was Sara Madalin's official Adoption Day!!! We had an appointment with the judge at 10:00 so Daddy stayed home from work this morning. He fed Sara Madalin here early morning bottle and let me sleep a little later. When I got up and went into the living room, this is what I found. 

After we all got ready, we went to the courthouse downtown and waited for our attorney and our turn with the judge. It was almost enough excitement that Sara Madalin woke up. But not quite.

We went into the judge's chambers with our attorney and swore to care for her and treat her as our biological child. The judge signed the papers and we were done. We should have a new birth certificate with her new legal name in a few weeks. And yet again, she slept through another important moment in her young life. But that's ok, we took a picture with the judge so she'll have this memory later in her life.
