Smiles All Around!

We now have TWO certified NY Adoption Decrees (Ash was a superstar and the Judge just couldn't say no...) and a signed receipt from the County Clerk that Ashton's passport will arrive in approximately 2 weeks. His NY Birth Certificate should arrive around that time as well, so the only task left on the docket is to take the adoption decree and his passport or birth certificate (whichever arrives first) to apply for his SSN.

There's a bottle of Perrier Jouet in the fridge with our name on it, and for our celebration dinner we're making homemade ravioli!

Congratulations! Ashton looks so proud and am quite sure he made an incredible impression on the judge and attorney. And showing them his "papa" pointing to the judge in a picture - well, that just is too cute! Will definitely share that with Papa! Have a grand celebratory rest of the day. Love all around and God bless you - everyone!

Congratulations! Oh, happy day AGAIN! Ash looks so cute with that gavel in his hand. I know you have to be relieved it all came together.

(I am still months behind on this process...honestly, it's not hard; I was just tired of paperwork!)
