We moved one step closer to our family of four on Tuesday. Our birthmom and her parents met with our birthparent worker to sign the adoption papers. We are officially in the 10 day legal risk period. On March 24th at 4:30pm our birthmom's decision will be final and the 25th is the end of the legal risk period for the birthfather to register with the birthfather registry. We won't officially hear anything until mid April or even May, however as the birthfather registry is really backed up lately. It takes a while for the affidavit to come back.
As this time is a happy one for us it is one full of many emotions for our birthmom, birthdad, and families, including grief. Please remember them in your thoughts and prayers.

Momma and babies
Jaden got to borrow Jacob's big boy alligator sleeping bag when we stayed at Grammie and Grandpas. He must have liked it more than we thought because he wanted to stay awake all night!
Mackenna's first official babysitter was Bevy while Momma took Jaden to school on Friday.
Grandma Pat and Bryce came over on Thursday night for some supper and fun.
Emily, Eleanor, Jonas, and Nate Habben came over on Tuesday with a yummy supper for us and some cuddle time with Mackenna.
The cousins got to meet! They are only 9 days apart. Olivia Joy Peterson and Mackenna Alexandra Peterson
