HOORAY!!!! The adoption hearing was this morning and it went off without a hitch. Yogi had to miss morning nap and required a paci while we waited, but he was a sport. Smiling and charming everyone in the courthouse. My parents weren't able to make it due to my Dad's chemo schedule, but my wife's parents came to town and we loved having the happy grandparents along.
Interestingly, it isn't quite accurate to say Yogi has two Mommies. The legal adoption language talks about co-parents, but when it comes to his birth certificate the boy has a Mother (my wife) and a Father (me). Gotta love that. I hope to be one hell of a Father. :)
