A Natural(ized) Girl!Here's Kacey at dinner after our court date with her friends Gracie & Emerson!
Here we are with the Honorable Judge Fernandez, L-R my brother Kevin, me, Kacey, Nana & Pop Pop. We missed you Jim!
Yesterday was Kacey's readoption hearing in Florida. She is now a naturalized citizen complete with a Florida birth certificate and I was reminded (under oath) that she is now considered my biological child and eligible to all inheritance I see fit. I was also reminded that I had total responsibility for her welfare until 18 and then the judge threw in the fact that I had a morale obligation for the rest of her life. Yikes!
Kacey was unimpressed except for the fact that she received a really cool tye died stuffed puppy from the judge and got to wear pantyhose which is a big treat. After the hearing we had a few friends join us at a favorite Chinese restaurant where we all ate too much and enjoyed each others company.
All in all a very good day!
If anyone lives in Florida and needs a terrific adoption attorney (he's a China dad with #1 at home and a Aug 2007 log in for #2) just let me know and I'll pass on the information. He is very reasonable and an absolute pleasure to work with.

I'm the first to admit that we are a pajama family. Nightgowns just make your legs cold especially when you refuse to keep any kind of covers on...Kacey Thomas!
Well we were shopping this weekend and saw this darling nightie on sale--for both Kacey & I it was love at first sight!
Needless to say she was "frozen" before she even lay down and we had to put on socks & leggings under all that finery but she was proud and happy and that's really all that matters! And cute, did I mention so very cute:)
