I've Been Waiting for This Moment for All My Life...

I know... I didn't see the Phil Collins coming either, but what are you going to do?

As of July 19, 2010,  Nathan Brent Rosenlof is official!

Here we are with Grandma Rosenlof, Grandma and Grandpa Olson and Judge Laycock!

Judge Laycock was very funny.  She wanted to make sure we knew that once she signed the papers, it was done.  She said if we changed our minds when he turned 16, she would be retired and "there would be no one to help us".

When she read the official declaration, she said she was granting him all rights, privileges, etc including "inheritance, if there's any money left by the time you die"....

She also admitted that we were lucky that these things didn't happen before a jury because Nathan's so cute one of the jurors might try to run off with him.
Forever, Little Man!  I'm your Mama forever. 

You're stuck with us now. 

And I don't know if anything's ever made me happier!

We have three boys home from Haiti and are stalled in the adoption process. Wondering what paperwork you had and how you were able to get to this point. Any advice would be great. Thanks. Julie
