When we got into the courtroom, I became SUPER serious. Even Judge Underwood was smiling at me, but would you believe I never cracked a single smile!?! (maybe I'm meant to be a lawyer myself! ha!)
Daddy swearing in... then Jeff, our lawyer, asked him several easy questions about the nature of the adoption (when & where I was born, who the adoption agency was, etc.) while the judge looked through our file. We also legally requested that my name officially become Caroline Elizabeth Corbett. (that's when Mommy & Daddy teared up) After the questions (which probably took less than 5 minutes), the judge looked up and said something like, "I grant this adoption! Congratulations!"
Yay! I'm officially a Corbett! They got'me! :)
Jeff, we are endeared to you for your services to me and our family! What a privilege it was to have our friend to share such a special occasion!
