Where House is NEVER safe...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! [personal entry] 
31st-Oct-2007 12:33 pm
Seven years ago today, at just about this time, Dakota and I stood before a judge (well, actually, he was cuddled in my arms, but I stood!), and we adopted one another.  And--as simple  and as complicated as that--we became a family.  So today, Halloween Day, 2007, is our family's birthday; Koda even took cupcakes to school!

Koda told me last night that he remembers only two things about that day:  the courthouse employee who was wearing the 'bleeding mask' from Scream, and that I, his new mommy, was crying--"a lot".   Below are a few pictures from that miraculous day.

Thanks for sharing those wonderful pics. I can totally see the love between the two of you. Love the noses pic!

That's so cute that he remembers you crying. Like you told me the other day, they grow up so fast.

Congratulations to your family! He's one lucky kid.

Those are such wonderful photos, too.

I'll have to ... indulge in some chocolate, or something, in honor of you and Ko.

Belated Happy Family B-day to you both!!! I say again, if you hadn't said he was adopted, I'd never have guessed. He looks a lot like you in the face. (Maybe a sign t'was meant to be?) :-)

*hugs! to you both*
