It's official!!

We received a wonderful surprise in our inbox today...a copy of Eli's new birth certificate that lists us as his parents!! I was shocked because I didn't really expect to get it until next week!! We are legally and officially a FAMILY!! Of course, we have been a family since the moment little pea came into our lives, but now it is official in the eyes of the government. What an amazing start to the weekend! After waiting and waiting and waiting for so long in the PGN slow lane, it feels like we have suddenly moved over to the FAST lane. It's AWESOME!!!!

Now we are waiting for Eli's passport and that should be done in the next couple of days.

Wonderful news! It's inspiring for those us watching and waiting to see how quickly the process seems to move after PGN out.
So happy for you to know what has been true in your heart from day one, is also legal and binding in the eyes of the government.
