Ah-hem: Official news has been received, straight from our Adoption Angel Sara E. Cliff and I are OFFICIALLY (read: legally) the parents of five kids. We are now out of MOJ, the Haitian government decreeing that the boys are legally our sons.
We are ecstatic. Another step closer to bringing these boys home.
Five kids. What a trip, huh?
We poured a glass of wine in celebration, and Cliff remembered a moment from our wedding dinner. For those who don't know, we eloped in Seattle with Cliff's youngest sister and her husband attending as our witnesses. Afterwards, we celebrated at a Thai restaurant in the Broadway District of Seattle. During the course of dinner, Mary asked if we were planning on more kids.
"Definitely," Cliff answered, looking at me. "I'm thinking five kids?"
I winked and replied, "Maybe more."
So here we are, a short 7 years later, parents to five. What a trip.
