Enter the Lucky Couple

Picture
Joe and Olivia Hope Church enter the marriage registration room. The regular adoption official was not there and this official was nice enough to fill in.

Running from the BaBa

Olivia is a very happy, fun, beautiful little girl with boundless energy. She learns very quickly and can tire four old people out (or at least the one carrying her).  Move over Sophia the new queen is coming.

More Paperwork

Picture
Do not get in a hurry if you want to adopt a child. Most of us have enough love to gie the child, or at least we like to think  so but the patience to go through everything rquired is astounding. Not something a family should rush into. Hats off to those that do it.

More Paperwork

Picture
Even the adopted child gets involved in filling out the paperwork. With a red inkpad Olivia adds her identity to the adoption papers.

Almost Done

Except for recording this at the notary public (another two hours this afternoon) this fingerprint seals it.
