My children's bio father signed his rights over on Wednesday. There are many reasons this is a good thing, but I just wanted to share my happiness! My husband is going to adopt my children and their last names will finally be the same as mine. My DH is their father in every way, shape, and meaning of the word. He's a "mr mom" day in and day out, and he's really excited too! I just had to share!

That is WONDERFUL news! I am so happy for you. What a wonderful thing to hear. I love hearing positive things like this. I'm sure you've been through a lot. Sounds like things are falling into place. I know that Becca too was able to just have this accomplished along w/ Kris last year.

If you have pix, please share. Becca had some of her DH & "their" daughter when he was signing the papers. It was sweet, a lovely moment.

HUGS

I will definitely share pics when we have the official adoption =). We signed the papers yesterday and are waiting for a court date! And as another thing to celebrate, we are expecting another baby!

Congrats! Our adoption was final on September 8th. That is the best feeling in the world. We took the kids with us when we went to sign the papers and I have the best picture of Sadie sitting on Kal's lap as he signed. We did not have to go to court though because he just gave up his rights. It took them 6 days to get everything final. It was FANTASTIC. I hope that everything goes smoothly for you.

Well maybe we won't have to go to court..their father signed them over willingly, but my lawyer said the judge can "deny" the adoption anyways. Crazy, isn't it? When one person WANTS to adopt my children, and be a legal father to them, and the other wants absolutely nothing to do with them and no responsibility for them!
