We are the legal parents of the latest and most precious U.S. citizen

It was a very special day today. Today was our final U.S. court date for Liam's adoption. Here he is waiting for his case.

So here's the final result:

"The Court finds that all prerequisites and requirments for adoption have been met, and that the adoption is in the best interests of the child. IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that the adoption of Liam is GRANTED...
The court finds that this child is a citizen of the United States by virtue of this adoption"

Hallelujah. We are speechless. And grateful.

Victor Negron is our attorney and we highly recommend him. Our court appointment was in San Antonio and everything went smoothly. Our judge was wonderful and she even let us take photos.

We still have homestudies and paperwork (until he's 18) but that's not a big deal - the important items are complete - and we are finally an official and certified family.

Happy 4th of July!

We love to visit Fredericksburg, Texas over Independence day weekend because it's a great small town celebration ...and where else can you find army tanks, beauty queens and flatbeds full of WWII veterans in the main street parade? Here's it comes...

And a few shots of little Liam with Amaye and Papa back at the homestead.
