We went before the magistrate this morning and he did a short interview with us. He says that I am an appropriate candidate for adoption and that he feels it is in Pickle’s best interest for the adoption to be granted. He then passes his recommendation on to the judge who then sends us a letter saying the adoption was granted and filed.
At the very end of the proceedings, they had us all come into the courtroom together while he read his “official” recommendation. He asked Pickle if he had anything he wanted to say to him and he shook his head yes, which shocked and scared me, so the magistrate told him to go ahead and he leaned over and put his head on my shoulder and said….
” I want this to be my Mommy.”
