We had to do Bella’s adoption finalization over the phone.  There was no way that Bella could travel to California.  So the picture on the left is the Judge and our attorney and then there’s us.  So very happy.  FINALLY.  She is ours.  Ours.   We love you little girl.  Welcome to the family, officially.  Happy tears.
