We were anxious, nervous, excited, scared.
We filled up a hallway and watched prisoners be escorted past us.We entered a chamber and tried to make small talk.
We attempted to set up a video camera, but missed the opportunity.
We watched as a Judge scribbled his name on a sheet of paper that would alter a little girls life forever.We smiled, giggled, and let out a huge sigh of relief.
We took pictures and we tried to contain our joy.We were handed papers with a brand new name on them.We couldn't believe it was real.We walked out of the courthouse as a family of three.We finally all had the same last name.We realized that our God is a whole lot bigger then we give him credit for and we thanked Him for answering our prayers in His timing instead of ours.Then we went home and began a new life.She was born on February 11th, 2007, but March 27th, 2008 was the day she became Josie Kathryn Pope.
And I became a Mommy.
