January 14th, 2021, the day had finally come! My heart was filled with joy and happiness but also was very anxious and nervous about if this really was going to happen today! Everyone in the house got to take the day off of school it was one of the best days ever! We waited for zoom to start everyone got to dress up due to Covid online was still an option, so we chose online, we were let in zoom we introduced ourselves to the judge and lawyer. So many people were on zoom ready for this moment to happen! It made me feel that everyone was on my side and knew it was best for me to be adopted! I just wanted it to happen and everything to be final so I could officially be a smith! As I was expressing my wanting to be a caseworker when I get older to help foster kids in need, I was able to see everyone being shocked and just happy.
The words came out of the lawyer’s mouth this adoption is now final. My heart filled with joy, and I was beyond happy it was the best day ever!! It was all over I finally had a forever home!! After the zoom was over, I got to pick a restaurant I wanted to go to we went to a burger place and had a wonderful lunch together!! We continued to celebrate throughout the day! Bring adopted to me means forever home no more moving around!
