Congratulations that's wonderful!! Does she call you Mom & Dad already, or did you not want to go there until you knew the adoption was going to go through? Does Nolan understand he's got a sister now? And I guess even moreso does Elizabeth understand she's with you for good?

Would love to see pics of the boys' first birthday too!

We started to call each other mommy and daddy on Jan 26th, when mom asked us to adopt her, we were auntie and uncle until then
Since then we've been mommy and daddy and have referred to her as the boys' sister. I honestly don't think Nolan remembers life before her-I asked him last month if he remembers life before the twins, and he looked at me like I had four heads-what do you mean we never had twins???

Marie, I'm so happy for your family! What a blessing for all of you. I am in shock over how fast adoption went, through the courts and everything?! Big Congrats!

The twins' adoption through a lawyer cost us $2k and 7 months. We did it ourselves this time, it cost $215 and took 47 days from grandma's first email to us, to yesterday when the adoption was approved by the courts. Wow!
