We finally made it to Adoption Day, we were all full of excitement, but I believe Selena was probably the happiest girl on earth that morning. She definitely jumped out of bed, ready to jump in the shower and get dressed ready to go. I had my concerns as to how she would deal with the Security as we entered the courthouse, and then all the stairs we would have to climb to reach the third floor. Once at the courthouse though Selena was the first to walk through security, with her head held high and a smile that I don't think anyone could have wiped off. The only thing she was upset with was that they didn't use the wand on her like they had to Papa and myself, due to our belts. She couldn't wait to climb the marble stairs, the same stairs that a while back she informed me she would never climb again.
We had a friend coming from Lacey, who planned on taking pictures and a video of the proceedings, but unfortunately we were the only adoption of the day, and as soon as our attorney showed his face, they quickly escorted us into the Judges Chambers. As we exited after the Judge signed the degree, our friend was making her way to the last two steps to reach the top of the third floor. That is right we did not get any pictures or a video taken. Believe me though I do not believe it will be a day we will ever forget.
