We talked to Ellie a lot about what we were heading to the courthouse for but you know, things like adoption law get a bit lost on three year olds :). All she cared to know was that Stephen and I were "going bye-bye too" and off we went!
Max behaved like his usual studly self and gave the judge a weird look when he asked if he was excited about his "new sister." I could just hear his thoughts "new? She's been around quite a while buddy!"
So happy to have this last formal step done! This little lady has long since been "ours" but it's nice to hear it declared "official"!!'
