The adoption won’t be final for several months but 5-year-old Alicia and 3 year old Alex-Martin came home yesterday. Alex’s middle name is Martin and he doesn’t like to be called Alex he prefers to be called Alex-Martin.

They both have separate rooms and of course Morgan had to have them painted and redecorated before they arrived home.

More to follow when we finally get a full nights sleep.

@ossobuco,
He’s holding a cock from the last time we went to Key West, what else would he be holding lol, chickens and rooster run wild around that town Very Happy

Antonio already loves his little sister and brother. Alicia is your typical little girl. She loves pretty dresses and barrettes in her hair. Her favorite doll is a raggedy ann doll her mother gave her when she was two years old.

That little Alex Martin boy and I are going to go round and round again tonight.

Last night was the first time all of us sat down at the table for dinner and Alex gets up takes his plate and goes into the other room, sits on the floor and turns the TV on. We don’t do that here.

Then in the middle of the night he gets up and goes into Antonio’s room to sleep. He’s never slept in his own room before. So I got up at midnight and took him back his room and sat there with him for two hours until he fell asleep.

I’m prepared to go through it all over again tonight and I’m exhausted but I love that kid to death.

Brilliant news! Congratulations to all of you.

I was just on the phone with my dad (hamburgboy) as I read your news, so told him about it. He was very happy to hear about the expansion of your family.

We have a long way to go before the adoption is legal.

The court has terminated the mother’s parental rights, but there is no father listed on the birth certificate so the court has to try to locate the father. How that can happen I have no idea but our lawyer says we have nothing to worry about. They’re here and their here to stay.

The kids are settling in quite nicely.

Now that little Alex Martin gave me a hard time again last night about sitting at the table and eating his dinner, he wanted to go watch TV again and when I told him he has to finish his dinner at the table with the rest of the family he told me he doesn’t want to live here anymore.

I simply told him I’m too exhausted to pack his suitcase tonight but I will first thing in the morning.

He just finished his dinner tonight at the table and I put his suitcase back in the closet.

@jcboy,
You do have to call their bluff from time to time . . . i think you handled that just right.
