Happy Adoption Day!!

They were in Kindergarten and Head Start when we were able to finally complete their adoption. It was March 2nd. Both sets of grandparents came to celebrate the day with us. We waited on a hard bench outside of the court room for our turn in front of the judge. We didn't know it at the time, but they were trying a criminal case in the hearing before ours. As we sat there an watched, they brought in two hardened criminals in orange jumpers and numerous handcuffs and chains. They were being tried for the death of a Cleveland, OK Sheriff a few years before. They were horrible looking and walked within touching distance of us.

I also found out that later that same day, the kids birth mother had been let of out jail on parole that same day.

We all went out to eat afterwards and celebrated. It was a good day!!!

Today in honor of their Happy Adoption Day, we went to IHOP and had dinner together. We let Frank and Libby choose.

Carlie quickly figured out that since she doesn't have an adoption day that her birthday should count TWICE as her anniversary AND her birthday. LOL.
