Adoption Decree has been signed!


I just found out that Anika's birthmother signed
for the 4th and final time yesterday. This means that
we are now Anika's legal parents! My heart breaks thinking
of how hard yesterday must have been for her.

Yesterday was also Miss Julianna's First Birthday! Julianna is my cousin's
daughter. She is so cute. Hope it was a great day.

What does this mean for our travel time now that we have the decree signed? Well we will hopefully being heading to Guatemala in mid-Jan!!

YES! Congratulations!

I know, it is such a sad step. You just pray Anika's birthmom knows in her heart how much Anika is loved and is comforted by that.

Congratulations on such an important step.

The final signing is so bittersweet. You are so happy, yet sad for the BM.

But, on a good note, you are her legal parents! That is a big yeah!! Enjoy that. You deserve the happiness
