In a previous post I promised photos of yesterday's adoption finalization at Rutherford County Chancery Court in Murfreesboro. I have some of them below, along with other photos taken this week. If all this "Look at my cute kid" picture posting is too much for my unsentimental readers, I will fully understand if you go on to another post. For those willing to see the coolest kid in the Western Hemisphere (biased, Evans?), gaze on! I apologize in advance for the lighting and other photographic issues, but these are family snaps, not professional shots.
Family members (L to R) attending the court proceedings were my brother Jack, Ann, Katie, myself, my mother Anne and father Comer.
Family members with Chancellor Robert Corlew (standing to my right) and our attorney David Scott (next to my father).
This was taken moments after David came out of the Rutherford County Chancery Court Clerk's office with a copy of the final adoption decree (which I'm holding in my hand).
Katie with the official "Katie Adoption Cake"!
Katie with one of her friends at the skating rink!
A pair of skating pals!
"From Russia, now skating for the United States..."
"What grace, what form, as she glides around the rink..."
Katie with Miss Natchez, who appears to be doing an ad for Office Depot paper products...
Katie with the normally-not-so-unaware-of-the-camera Oreo...
Katie (modeling her Metro Schools Standard Attire) with Bentley, the Earl of Puppydom (who's in full bark mode here)...
That's our happy-go-lucky girl!
