We finally got the call yesterday!!! We had a bike ride and a picnic to celebrate. When Aaron told the big kids that the judge signed some papers that say we can keep her I wish I had would've had a video camera. Lydia dropped what she had in her hand jumped up from the picnic blanket and squeezed miss T around the neck, all the while cheering YEAH! My deep thinker Jonah shared that we should explain that to her when she's old enough to understand and gave Aaron a thumbs-up.
Now all we have left to do is finalize in our state and it it's a done deal!
We are so grateful that the judge confirmed where our hearts have been for a long time. She's ours. . . always has been always will be. Wow that feels good to write!
