Gabe's adoption was finalized this morning by the judge! We couldn't be happier. I feel like I can finally breathe... Our son is ours. One of the lawyers asked us while we were on the stand, "Do you realize that this means Gabe is no different to you than if you had given birth to him?" I realize he meant as far as legalities go... But to me, it feels the same on all levels. I would feel no different than if I had given birth to him. I love him with all of my heart. I am his mom and he is my son. How blessed are we.
