It's done!! We are a legal family. We are so thrilled to have Shep's adoption complete, I can't even explain how I feel right now. We have cried and fought and worked our way through this last year and, honestly, it's been brutal. Someday my brain will put all the events and emotions from this year in order and I will share my thoughts with you, but I'm not quite there yet. For now, I can tell you that there is relief. And Gratitude. Oh, and happiness. So much happiness. I am deeply in love with our little family. I would move mountains for them.
