Adoption is Granted!

July 22, 2011 at approximately 9:45am, the adoption of our son was FINALIZED!!!  We got up early, drove the family across town to the new and beautiful Fort Bend County Court House, and patiently waited for our court session to begin.  And, it was over so fast we hardly had time to think about it!

It was such a nice day and a great experience! The judge told us we were some of the first adoptions in the new court house, and July 2011 had five Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, something that would not happen in another 800 or so years!

The judge called another case before ours so luckily we got to see how the proceedings went before we were called, which was second. The judge really enjoys Adoption Day, it's a happy day in a court room!

Here we are waiting outside the court room

AND, Daddy making Jake laugh just after they told us to take any loud and disruptive children out of the court room :)

Raise your right hand and repeat after me...

Adoption is GRANTED and Jake, here's a teddy bear from the judge!

The newly officially formed Family!  Happy Family Day!

Here we are with our Lawyer, Nice and Happy Day!

If you are thinking about adoption, and you live in the Houston Area (or Texas for that matter)  I would suggest you check out AIM Adoptions. AIM Adoptions Web Site  We were not featured on the site as waiting parents simply because we were not waiting long enough!!!  It was such a fast and successful experience!  Check it out!
