Today, I signed the documents.
Today, Jáchym is no longer legally “mine”.
According to the State of Wisconsin, he has been technically my child since the moment he was born. I know…strange, right?
Law is weird.
Today, paperwork was signed handing over all rights to the guys. Did I have a problem signing it? Are you kidding? Not at all. Jáchym is and will always be their child.
…But I was kinda sad. No, I’m not sad Jáchym isn’t mine (though he is a really cute baby!). He’s where he should be-with Tomas and Honza. With his daddies. I’m sad because that’s one more piece of the process that’s completed, and it’s one more step done that will allow the guys to go home.
Yes, they need to go home. I know this. I’ve put myself in their shoes 8 million times and can’t imagine how hard this is for them…having a newborn baby and not being able to share him with friends and family. Skype and e-mails can only do so much. Home. They need to go home.
And as many times as I tell myself this, I can’t seem to accept it.
Someone please tell me this is going to get easier?
