On December 17th, a long wait finally came to an end for Donna & our little family.
We finally had our court date for Donna to adopt (step-parent adopt) the boys. It was a quick & painless process for us once the law finally recognized our marriage. The cost were more than cut in half & the time was basically just what it took to draw up the paperwork & get a court date.
The judge didn't even let our attorney finish her review of the legalities before he said "I've already signed the judgement, lets just put down on paper what is already a reality for these handsome boys."
I think we were in his chambers for 5 minutes, if that!
It's a great great feeling knowing that our family, all of us, are now recognized & protected!!!
