Adoption Day

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Monday October 25 was Sophie’s adoption day at the courthouse in San Francisco. It was an amazing day with family. JP and I are so proud to be the legal parents of two wonderful kids, and so thankful to our families for helping us and supporting us through every stage of our lives. 

We were at the courthouse at 8:30 AM.

"Oh what a beautiful morning" - Oklahoma

The actual hearing takes only a couple of minutes

"Are the luckiest people in the world" - Funny Girl

The judge that does all adoptions in SF is wonderful, and presided over both Evan’s and Sophie’s day in court. 

"and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true" -Wizard of Oz

Filing the paper work took a little longer while family waited.

"I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm" - state fair

Everyone went to the playground at Yerba Buena after, adults drank our morning coffee while the kids played. Highlight at the playground was Evan going down the slide with his cousins.

"..and away we go" -Kiss me Kate

To officially celebrate the day, the family went to a long, fantastic lunch at the new restaurant on the bay “La Mar”.

Evan got to try octopus – but clearly wasn’t impressed.
