Well, it’s official! Zoe is now Zoe Marie OurLastName! Today was the day her adoption was finalized in court, and it was such a wonderful day!
These are just a few pictures from our day!
This is the moment when Zoe’s adoption became official:

Posing with Heidi, our caseworker:
We had SUCH a great day from start to finish! We feel so very lucky to have such a wonderful daughter. We couldn’t be any happier that we made the decision to adopt – our family has grown in so many ways! I got tears in my eyes when the judge started the hearing – I just couldn’t believe that we had come so far. I’m so happy that Steve is my husband – he has been right by my side, every step of the way. We’re so lucky that we have such a fantastic family that supported our decision to adopt as well as have an open adoption. And of course, we’re so grateful and thankful that Zoe’s birth mom decided to ask us to be Zoe’s parents.
Happy Adoption Day, Zoe!
