It's Official

Grady's adoption is finalized!

Family and friends witnessed this part of our journey. Grady was highly interested in everything the judge had to say - evidenced by his "talking" in court. We even had to move the microphone so his voice didn't boom throughout the courtroom.

We all enjoyed a celebratory luncheon at Paradise Landing.
Grady is such a big boy that he even sat in a high chair at the head of the table.
Adoption is a powerful and lifelong commitment.
We've known since the moment we saw him that Grady is our son; it sure is wonderful to have the state recognize our relationship. What an emotional and meaningful day!
