A judge of an US district court decreed Ezra our legal son today. He has always been ours in our hearts since the day he was born but it is so nice to be able to go to court and have it officially and legally decreed, too. It was a happy morning for our little family. Ezra was social and smiley as usual. And, just like I did with Bella, I teared up and bumbled through as I went on record about how much I love Ezra and how grateful we are to be able to adopt him. My heart has been full this morning with love for my children and my husband and for gratitude to amazing birthparents who make it possible for me to be a mom, and for a loving Heavenly Father who guides this whole process. Life is good and I am happy! Next stop...the temple.

Happy, happy, family.
