Emily's Court Date For Re-Adoption

Yesterday we had to go before a Judge here in our county to domesticate Emily's foreign adoption. This wasn't mandatory since her adoption was completed in China, but it will enable us to now file and get a birth certificate issued from the State of Georgia. We weren't sure this was going to go off as originally scheduled. On April 27th, a couple of weeks after we filed her papers, an EF4 tornado hit the town and leveled a good portion of it. Thankfully our immediate area didn't receive much damage, but sadly there were 8 fatalities in the areas that were. This included a family of 4 whose home was in the direct path of the storm. Our town is now in the process of rebuilding.

Emily continues to grow and we are amazed each day at just how far she has come since she joined our family.
