Finalization has Begun

So the 6 month mark has passed and we have consulted an attorney to begin the finalization process. Seems pretty straight forward, papers from the agency, a meeting to discuss our background and how the adoption thing all came to be. We don't have to actually appear in court and the attorney basically takes care of everything( for a small fee of course...LOL).It should take around 3 months for the Korean name to permanently become her new American name. I have to admit it feels a bit strange to write that, almost as if we are taking something from her but I guess that's natural. We can then file for a birth certificate that reads "certificate of foreign birth." Then a social security card and an American passport.

Lily these days is quite the climber. I can't turn my head for a second. Here is a pic of how I often find her. Notice the bruise on her forehead. September is a big month for birthdays in our family and we just celebrated Lance's 8th!!

Lily's Room

Some pics of how Lily's room is progressing since we moved in. Still a few more things to do but pretty nice so far. She seems to love her crib. I know the big girl room is right around the corner!
