She's Really My Daughter!!!!!

Today we received the emailed scan of I.'s new birth certificate.* She's really our daughter.
There's also a new picture stapled to the birth certificate. It's a little passport photo/mug shot-ish thing, and the quality is really poor. But I cannot believe how she's grown, and how she smiles!
(DS says this time, "She looks like a lot of fun!" We agree).

*The bc has an asterisks, and at the bottom, it says "adoptive parents." It doesn't efface any original information, and we do have, thankfully, quite a bit of information on her family of origin. And she'll always know everything we know. I promise.

YAY YAY YAY!!! I'm SO happy for you three- it brings tears to my eyes- seriously it's like when you are driving on a road filled with potholes then you hit a nicely paved portion- you breathe a sigh of relief and ease up on your steering wheel grip a bit! (except this is obviously more important!)
this weekend -- celebrate!
