The local courts like to make a pretty big deal about it as they are used to dealing with criminals and people suing each other so it's nice when they get to see a happy family. So we had to be at court at 9am where we met up with Grammy, Grandpa, Gram King, Aunt Melinda, Uncle Jim, James and Sammy. They called us into the courtroom around 9:30 and we went back to the Judge's Quarters where we met Judge Manzi and the rest of the court personnel. Of course they were all enamoured with our Grace. Grace got to sit on the Judge's lap and help sign the paperwork. It was all pretty informal but everyone there was so nice and we could tell they really enjoyed being a part of the finalization of our adoption. After everything was signed we took some pictures and Grace got a special picture taken on the judge's chair.
We all went back to our house afterwards for coffee and donuts and then we took everyone out for lunch at a local restaurant that we like. It was a very cool day and we were so glad that our families got to be a part of this special moment for our family. Some pics of the day below.
