Chinese New Year and Readoption Court

Our friends are so wonderful. I realize I have said this before, but it is so true. We celebrated the Chinese New Year, the Year of the rabbit with the Duhs (Yup, I am using names, just to give credit where credit it due.  Funny, that is how you say Duh- due!). They did all the work and just let us join in! We had hot pot and ate all night. MMMMM... Here are a few pictures of the night.

Today was a big day for us too.  We went to court to have Micah readopted.  It does not change a lot since his adoption was finalized in Taiwan and he is already a US citizen.  It will allow us to get a US birth certificate and correct his majorly messed up social security card.  I forgot to get a picture with our attorney, but plenty with the judge.  We were early for our appointment so this is us waiting until 10:00 rolled around.  Elliana run into Micah's room this morning and told him, "This is a special day, Micah.  It's readoption day!"  I was so sweet of her.  She also made me a special bracelet, or something like it, at school on Monday, just for the occasion.  Keeping with her excitement, she did her own her, just like Fancy Nancy since today was fancy!

Andy is not actually mad, he was just being weird!  The judge was very nice.  He asked the kids if they wanted to come up and sit in his chair.  Pictures below.  He asked us questions about why adoption and why Taiwan.  He had one previous case for Taiwan, but only one.  He asked Elliana about her brother and she gladly shared how much she loves both of them!  Andy mostly made faces, but stayed quiet, which made the judge laugh even more.  He said that he wrote a book on adoptions in his court and thinks that he needs to write another and include us in it.
