Just as I was prepared to step into the shower at 11:30 AM, the Texas case worker called to say the judge was ready.
Within 5-7 minutes, the process was completed with the judge, attorney, case worker, and guardian ad litum/CASA present.
By 11:40 PM, I was repeating the words, so elegantly spoken to me by my sister, Autumn Haas, at my own adoption 32 years ago: “Well, you are officially a Haas’ ass.”
This phrase has been uttered to each son upon finalization, continuing the traditional Haas investiture begun by Princess Royal Autumn Leigh Haas.
At the conclusion, Griffith went back to watching SWEENEY TODD (the movie musical), and I turned to the blog!
We will grab some adoption day photos in a while.
