Introducing the Newest Member of our Family

I am surprised that a while back when I mentioned that the social worker was coming to do our home study that no one asked about it. Well, we spent the morning at the courthouse finalizing our latest adoption.

Introducing ...........drumroll please..............


 Snazzy suit for court
Little man looked like a million bucks!

County Court #3
Judge Patrice McDonald presiding

A snazzy suit needs snazzy footwear 
Such tiny little feet!

Jonathan looking at Daddy.....
but why is Daddy making that face?

Hugs from brother Ahren

High five from brother Levi

Seth, Levi and Ahren waiting in the hallway before court

And finally, the happy face of Jonathan
(formerly known as Seth)

So why Jonathan? We let him decide. He came up with Jonathan and has never wavered from it. It turns out it means 'Gift from God' and that is what I have always told him. He is truly a gift from God.
See those puffy eyes I am sporting? I bawled like a baby, my heart absolutely overflowing with love and joy.
