Forever Ours

I am surprised at how much it means to know that we are now officially the parents of our little boy. In our hearts he has been our son ever since he was placed in our arms 9.5 months ago.

Today I received a surprising call from our attorney who let me know that they received the final adoption decree. Ben's name is now officially Ben and he is a US citizen. And we're his parents.

The day the adoption became final was the anniversary of the day that our acceptance paperwork made it to Korea. Isn't it great that with all the little steps involved in adoption there is always a special date to pick from?

Now it's on to the final round of paperwork and we will be DONE.


  1. Wow! Congratulations! So happy! :)

  2. Congratulations! Such exciting news!

  3. hoooooray! so exciting! congrats!
    so, who's last name did he end up taking? ;)

    Alex has been with us 2 years today... and we are still waiting on him becoming a Canadian.

  5. Great news! I'm so looking forward to that (but not our bill!!) Congrats!

  6. So sorry it has taken me a month to see this great post - but CONGRATULATIONS to You, Mike and Ben!! Such a great reason to celebrate!
