The Adoption is FINAL!!!

We had the final hearing for Clint to adopt Rylee on July 28th, 2010 at 8:30am!  The reason we all look a mess is because we were!  I woke up at 8:05am and EVERYONE in the house was still sleeping, nobody was dressed & we were supposed to be walking out the door at 8am.  Luckily we made it with NO time to spare.  When the court room started to take attendance...of course the Blackham's were the first name called on the list!  The judge told Rylee it was her special day and that is what she reminded us ALL day long!  After signing the final papers, we had our picture taken with the judge, and then Rylee got to pick out a teddy bear at court.  She picked a rainbow bear that has now become very special to her & comes with us almost everywhere we go.  The whole week before, she would tell anyone "I get to go to court AND the temple, I'm so lucky!"  But I'm the one who feels so lucky having this amazing little girl in our family.  We love you Rylee!
