We signed the papers yesterday. Woot!

We are officially a family now. Not that we weren't before, but now I don't have to worry about her mother influencing Samantha. We're having a party on December 20th at the park for some of her friends and our friends and family. Sam wanted to celebrate. Rod walked around teasing her tonight saying that now we were going to change her name to Gertrude Penelope and call her Gertie. LOL SAm was loving every moment of it. she's got a great sense of humor. Everyone has asked what to get her and I told them a book. She's just discovering some book series, so it would make a nice gift. (Really, I didn't want gifts at all, but everyone is insisting.) So I figure a paperback won't set everyone back too much. We're so thrilled. And it's so funny to see that the paperwork is good until 2023. Things are going well and going to work out just fine. Thank you all for sharing in all of this with me. You're all the best pals a girl could ask for.

Hugs, Patt

That's what Sam said too. Just think how exciting Christmas will be this year. :) She's very happy and if she's happy, we're happy.

Thank you, Grey. We're thrilled. You know it can cost up to 4,000. for a lawyer, but I did all the research and filed for us that way and it was much cheaper. More money to spend during the holidays. :)

You know, I didn't get any of these posts in my email. But today it seems to be working all right. Maybe they were celebrating early. LOL

I had to go to my inbox to see most of the comments from my calendar postings. The notifications have been very sparse. I have no idea why.

Let's just say they're drinking too much and leave it at that. :)

I'm way behind on a lot of things, but having a spare minute of (somebody else's :-)) wireless, and seeing this -- I'm so glad this is working out so well for you. Samantha sounds like a delight (and like she has a good head on her shoulders) and I know with all my heart that you and your husband will be a huge blessing to her.

Thank you for your kind words. Samantha is a delight. WE enjoy her so much. She was so happy when she left for school today.

Oh, yes! I've been holding my breath, hoping you'd say it was all done and dusted soon.

I'm so happy for you, sweetie. And congratulations on becoming a mum again! Sam couldn't ask for better family - she deserves all the love in the world, and I know you and your guy will give it to her.

Massive hugs and happy early Christmas to all of you ♥
