We're official! Evie slept through the whole proceeding, which consisted of us being sworn in and then answering "yes" or "no" to a long string of questions from our lawyer, such as: "Do you realize that after this final declaration Evelyn will be yours forever and you can't give her back?" This made both J and me want to laugh and answer sarcastically "really? crap." But we restrained our natures and simply answered "yes." Basically all of the questions were geared toward establishing for the record that we are who we appear to be, that there was no coercion of birthparents involved and that we will provide Evie with health insurance, education and a stable family. The judge was very nice and wished us congratulations afterward.
I know, this post was pathetically short compared to my usual verbosity. Never fear, I have a couple of doozies planned for the next couple of days. Stay tuned.
