09-09-09

Why is this date special?  Because today we are the proud parents (again) to a special little Haitian boy now with his name legally changed and local county adoption decree (with 5 certified copies, I might add).  Soon he will have his US birth certificate too, it will be sent in the mail!  Court was very casual, held in the judges chambers.  It was just us, the judge, and Grandpa.  We were in and out very quickly with a picture or two snapped.  (I'll post some soon) I have to admit, I got a bit teary eyed while we were answering the judge.  E. was antsy and S. didn't want to sit for the entire eight minute process.  Then we had to go to the clerk's office to finish more paperwork and get the copies of the decree.  This is when E. went into his mean mode.  He likes to pick on people like me or his sisters when he doesn't like the way things are going.  That led to a fit being thrown in the middle of the crosswalk on the way to our car!  Oh my.  We are stuck with him forever now, it's in writing.  Seriously, we will love him unconditionally, for the rest of our lives.  

After reading my friend Sarah's blog about her wait for Isaac, I feel even more thankful for our newest member of our family.  Thank you Lord.  And please bring Isaac home soon so he can be with his family and friends who are waiting for him.
