It's official!!!

As of 11:30am (or so) on Friday, November 18th, Zachary became OFFICIALLY ours.  :-)

We were lucky enough to be part of National Adoption Day, which was above and beyond what we could have ever imagined. 
From the moment we arrived at the courthouse, we were pretty much attacked by the press wanting to get our picture, interview us, film us, etc...etc..  Apparently two good looking guys and a very cute baby make good press....if I may say so.  ;-)
Seriously though, we were totally taken off guard by the amount of attention we got, but all in all, it was an amazing day.

For those of you in the Boston area - Jim, Zachary, and I are going to be 'featured' (what this means exactly, I don't know) the 6pm news tomorrow night (Channel 7 - WHDH, Thursday 11/24).  Local reporter (and a favorite of Jim and I) Nicole Oliverio is going to be at Jim's mother's house tomorrow afternoon to get some footage of our family, and to interview the three of us. As I mentioned before, I really have no idea what the segment will turn out to be like, but we're pretty excited either way.
The news crew (Nicole and her camera men) were at the courthouse on Friday, and came into the courtroom with us for the actual ceremony - so I imagine that will be part of the feature as well.
It's all very exciting, and we're looking forward to it - so be sure to watch if you can!
Of course, if it ends up being on line (which I imagine it will be) I'll be sure to post it here.

I hope you all have a GREAT Thanksgiving - and I'll be back here to report what happens tomorrow!!!

Here's a picture of Zachary on the 'big day'
