She is officially ours!

Glory, hallelujah, and praise be to God!  It seems like it has taken forever to get to this point, and the backstory is moot by now, but we finally had our finalization hearing today.  Juliette was officially ours as of about 10:00 am this morning – and as one friend said, we are now hers, too.  Judge Quaintance is so very, very nice – you shouldn’t be nervous if you have to appear before her, she makes the process easy.  It was all over almost as soon as it began, and then were were a few moments for pictures.

  1. What Margret said. We love you, and we’re so happy for all three of you. And very happy for the lucky Grandparents and Auntie.

    Now spoil that child good and proper!

  2. My dear, dear friends,

    Words cannot express my joy! I thought of you this morning when I woke, hoping all would go smoothly today. And it has! Juliette is a lucky girl, and you two are the best of parents for her. Can’t wait to see her again soon. I have enjoyed all the photo updates, especially Halloween.



  3. Congratulations to the most deserving parents. All good things really do happen to good people.

    Love always,

  4. Boyd and Harald! I know this is over due but CONGRATULATIONS on your beautiful bundle of joy and love! Her cheeks! Her CHEEKS! I want to kiss ’em!
