Forever Family Day!

Today was a very special day - Forever Family Day! Today the nice judge declared Aidan ours forever, and ever, and ever! YIPPEEEE! We are complete and final with the adoption process! It was very quick but mama still managed to get emotional.

Our attorney was there and we inquired about getting Aidans passport to travel to Australia for Christmas. I thought we had to wait until we get his new birth certificate 9 months to 1 year from now. Great news- all the passport agency needs is a certified copy of the adoption decree! I hope all the aussie rellies are ready for us! Now for pics from the days events, the bailiff was nice enough to take pictures for us... waiting outside the court room with dad. Clinton is teaching Aidan to give the sign for "number 1"
Raising our right hands for the swearing in.

Dada signing....

Mama signing.....

The judge signing....

Complete as a family. See the tears on my face?

Mr. Leavitt our attorney. He has been doing adoptions for 50 years!

Outside the court house

On to the festivities.... Lunch at Claim Jumper. I LOVE it there. They have a special plate just for babies.

Aidans newest funny face. Yes I love it here too!

Riding the carousel at the mall. Not knowing quite what to think, but he really did enjoy it.

Balloons, Balloons, beautiful balloons. I LOVE balloons!.....

So Aidan HAD to have one!

Guys, I am so happy for you all. I can't wait to see you and Aidan at the end of the month. He's officially a "cuz" now. And so handsome with that new haircut.
