Today, our little boy officially became  our little boy!
The province he is in is extremely easy, paperwork wise. With our little M, everything took a long time,  it took a full day to do every step, but here in our boy’s province, things seem to be streamlined a bit.

We headed back to the central affairs offices, and signed all of the paperwork…
We promised never to abuse or abandon our son, and to give him an education. We were asked if we knew about his special need, and if it mattered to us. Of course it doesn’t…

We signed the papers…

And left our thumbprints.

Our boy left his handprint…

And that was that!

It’s official.
