It's official!

Friday, March 20, 2009

We had our court day today, with Grace. It was so much fun! I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that we met up with an orphanage mate of Grace's at her court date. While we were there, we saw Judge Gilmore, who had presided over the proceedings for Lily, Jadon and Yana's court dates. I told him that we had been assigned a different judge for Grace's court date. But, he said that wouldn't do! So, he changed it for us! Now, all of our children have had the same judge for their court proceedings. Judge Gilmore is such a nice man and makes the proceedings a lot of fun for the kids. He said that our family set the record for him, with four adoptions.

Here is Judge Gilmore, signing the official paperwork.
Grace receives her official "Certificate of Adoption." It was fun to see Uncle Morgan again too.
A couple of jurors deliberate over the case...

But, in the end, everything proceeds wonderfully!

The whole family.

A sweet smile, outside the courthouse.

Oh, how I love these five precious gifts from God!

Congratulations! That is so neat to have the same judge for all the "hearings." Where was the court? I am wondering where ours will be and whether we can request Judge Gilmore. :o)
