I cannot think of a better reason to throw a party than the finalization of the adoption of our perfect baby boy. In our state, a birth mother has 48 hours to sign her parental rights termination following the child's birth, but the adoption is not finalized until at least six months later in the court. We always knew in our hearts D was our forever son, but having it legally recognized was quite the emotional experience, one that I will treasure forever. We were lucky to have so many of our friends and family celebrate D's adoption being "O-FISH-AL". See below for all of the details on this very festive party!
