A Gay Family Finally Coming Together

DSC_0640

Well tis the Season of families coming together. On May 22, 2013 Juan and I officially tied the knot. We were able to celebrate in Jacksonville, FL with our family and friends. It was such a great ceremony and we are so happy of the turn out. While in FL we were able to do a little sight seeing as well. We were able to travel to Orlando and go to Disney World. Edgar had a blast there as he has been begging to go see Mickey and Friends. We were also able to visit the oldest occupied city in the nation. We went to St. Augustine. While in St. Augustine we took Edgar Horse back ridding. It was really nice getting out of the city and enjoying nature.

Although we were extremely exhausted we had a blast and it will be a memory of ours that we will never forget.

Once we returned from FL we had a letter in the mail waiting for us from the Courts in Sand Diego. The letter basically said that we were able to call and make a appointment to come and finalize our adoption of Edgar. Edgar was finally going to officially be our little boy.  Even though our wedding was very memorable at that moment of scheduling that court date (July 5, 2013) was very joyful for Juan and I. We just had a sigh of relief.

That being said we have planned our trip back to where it all started. We are coming to San Diego and we are going to celebrate over the 4th of July weekend. We are so excited to not only see our friends that we dearly miss but we are so happy to be able to make this long journey a reality. If we had to do all of it over again I do not think that we would change a thing. We have learned a lot and Juan and I have became stronger as a couple making us perfect candidates to have Edgar as our son.

Anyone that is in the area on July 5, 2013 is more than welcome to come join us finalize our adoption at 3:00 PM  at the San Diego Juvenile Court House  (2851 Meadow Lark Dr, San Diego, CA 92123).

We want to thank ALL of our friends and family that have supported us through these awesome life changing events. We really appreciate all the support.

Our Little Boy!!! How Cute is he
