She´s Ours!!!

It´s over!! Our adoption of Soleil is complete! The final decree was signed by the birth mother on Saturday, and now Soli is legally our daughter! I am so relieved. Dave is flying down in a week and a half for our embassy appointments. We´re planning on taking the kids to see some of the sights and to visit the Rio Dulce (where Dave and I met almost 12 years ago) while he´s here. Then we´ll be on our way home! We´re flying through Miami, and we´ve arranged for a long layover so we can have lunch and introduce Soli to her Miami grandparents. We´re hoping to be home by the second week in February in time to get the kids on the slopes once or twice before the snow melts. And, hopefully, they´ll still have Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks! Thank you all so much for your continued support and warm wishes. I´ll be keeping this blog going for several months after we´re home (and then it´ll probably morph into a family blog). I´m having technical difficulties with my computer, but once I have those sorted I´ll be posting pics of our infamous day at the ruins. As always, thanks for checking in. -Heather

Heather, Dave and Kids,

We are so excited to hear the news the adoption is complete. We can't wait to meet our new neighbor. I am sure she will love all the rancho fun this next summer.
Congrats!
Kim, Matt, Thomas and Tara
