He's ours! officially! again!

On Thursday we completed our readoption of Leo Dawit -- or should I say Leroy, which is what the judge called him. The whole process was somewhat anticlimactic, but incredibly cool. Probably due to our amazing lawyer who agreed to drive up from Knoxville to handle our case.

We only had to beg a little and tell her that no readoption had ever taken place in Jackson County and we just didn't feel comfortable using a local attorney who asked us "what exactly IS a readoption?"

Our terrific case worker, Lisa, came up for the momentus event and we all reveled in making Jackson County history.
