Not that there are too many things competing, but this is our best news of 2020. It’s also one of the few things worth shouting on this blog!
As of 7 August 2020, HE’S OFFICIALLY OURS.
There was the day we thought it was going to be official. So we got dressed up and made a thing of it.
But then it WAS. And we can’t hardly believe it. We had two dear Thai friends wait with us for hours–with their kids, too–so they could be our witnesses.
And then in a very anticlimactic moment, we were handed two officially stamped and officially dull-looking documents.
And just like that, we’re officially a family.
We submitted our application 1,931 days ago.
We brought him home 448 days ago.
He calls us mom and dad; we call him son. It’s a beautiful thing.
