Last week we got an unexpected call from our Lawyer that there was an opening for a hearing on Tuesday, Feb 28th for adopting Norah! This was very unexpected since we were planning on the end of March or April to get a hearing date. So we made it work with our crazy life and drove all the way to Georgetown Colorado yesterday for our adoption hearing. It is not easy have 3 children, 3 and under go to 3 different places, but I had so much help!
Everything went great with the hearing! It was easy, fun, and Norah was so cute.
My favorite part, when Brett was asked what Norah calls him, "well it depends on the day, most days she calls me dadda, but others it's dadderton." and then Norah bursts out loud, "Dadderton!"
Can you even believe it? That is has gone by so fast, and so smooth! We have been blessed tremendously and have seen Gods hand throughout this entire process. He has taken care of our every need from money, to lawyer, to paperwork, to help from others, to home study, to everything!
We seriously cannot thank all of you who have helped so much as well, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
Norah is a true blessing
Here are a few photos from the event
A special day deserves a special treat, how about a pink donut!
