Signed, sealed, delivered, he's ours...

In a perfect world I wouldn't have to adopt my own children, but I do. This being said however, I prefer to look at the bright side. We are blessed to live in a place where it is possible to create this legal tie.

After a long wait of six months (required age for a child to be adopted in DC) Susanne, Danny, Benji and I went to the courthouse this morning and the judge signed an order finalizing Benji's adoption. His legal connection to me now is exactly the same as any other parent to his or her child.

Come to think of it, forget what I said about this not being a perfect world. Look at this son of ours. Perfection seems like a pretty good word now that I think of it! -M

Congratulations!!! Sadly, Florida is oe of those places where that legal tie cannot be established. I have a good friend here whose partner cannot adopt their little girl. Unbelievable. On a happier note, I can't believe how big Benji looks!! I'll be home July 19-31 so I hope we can find a time to get together then!
