We FINALLY adopted our foster son on this past Friday. It is about time too. LOL. His name is Charlie and we have had him since he was 3 weeks old. He came to us right out of the hospital. We were SUPER lucky to be in the right circumstances at the right time, and now, after 2 years of waiting (almost to the day too, he was placed with us July 19th 2006) He is OUR SON! The pic below is our whole clan at the courthouse while the certificate of adoption was being signed. Now if we could only get a date on our other son, we would be all set. LOL. Thanks for looking icon_biggrin.gif

TY Everyone. I am still saying to hubby "He is OURS". LOL.
TheCakerator-Yes it will be cake time on Aug 2nd. I am not sure what to do yet as long as it is BIG. I am from a HUGE family so we just sent out 143 invites to his adoption party. ANd thats is ALL just aunts, uncles and cousins, NO distant reletives. LOL. SO though I am not sure yet, it will definately be WOW. LOL.

I agree with luelue1971 -- it is wonderful when a great lucky little boy is brought together with a wonderful family!

I have read your signature lines many times and always thought - "She must be a great person and have a terrific family!"

Congrats and continue happiness to you all!
