ANDREW DUNCAN FREEMAN
I was so nervous today in court, not really knowing what to expect but everything went very smoothly. The Judge was very young but very professional, he asked me to stand up tell him my name, date of birth and place of birth, how much education I had and where I worked, he asked the same of my husband. He asked why we wanted to adopt and if we could afford another child. The court room was a small room not the kind of court room I am use to , there were about 8 other people in the room. The director of the orphanage seemed very happy that we were adopting Andrew she spoke in our favor. The Judge leaves the room to make a decision and then comes back and pronounces him as our son Andrew Duncan Freeman and then congratulates us, That was a great feeling....we do have to wait the 10 days so our order will not be signed until August the 3rd.. My husband and I have made the decision to go home for this wait and spend time with our children at home who we have missed something terrible, we have never been apart this long and it has been hard for all of us. So I will get to see my little man tomorrow for the last time until I return to pick him up and I can't wait !!! I am going to miss him so much and I hope he doesn't forget who we are.
Wednesday when we visited him he gave his daddy sugar for the first time it was so cute and I was lucky enough to get a picture. This is the first time he has kissed that we have seen.
