I Gotcha!

Today was a wonderful day: my adoption of Lea was completed and the decree was signed, sealed and delivered.

Lea's adoption doesn't change anything, of course. I've been Lea's mom since before she was born (indeed, since way before she was born. I even transported her while she was a tiny blastocyst frozen in a test tube from one fertility treatment center to another when our Reproductive Endocrinologist switched practices). But the adoption formalizes my legal rights and responsibilities to Lea and that is a very, very good thing.

So, as both Hallie and Lea love to say when they jump into our arms for a big bear hug, "I gotcha!"
