Four Forever Families

Jennifer Cochran represented four families last week in the finalization of the adoption of their precious children! Here's a recap of the week from Ms. Cochran: I had such an amazing week working with the following families in finalizing their adoptions. It of course brought back sweet memories of the day when my daughter's adoption was finalized. Please note that I have not used the families names due to privacy concerns.
"Family 1 was a relative adoption of a sweet and adorable 18-month old baby girl. She clapped and said yes every time I mentioned her name (which of course was the right answer to the questions I was asking)."
"Family 2 was a single mom adoption of a fiesty and beautiful two-year old girl. She high fived me when everyone clapped as the Judge granted the adoption. She also high fived the Judge!
"Family 3 was a two mom adoption of a happy and healthy 9 month old baby boy who has been with his adoptive moms since birth. He was such a happy baby and so quiet! He charmed the entire courtroom with his chubby cheeks!"
"Family 4 was a traditional two parent adoption of an 11 year old boy's adoption who has resided with his adoptive parents since he was a newborn. His adoption was postponed due to the ups and downs of financial struggles and military service. He proudly testified before the Court (even though not required). The Judge was very impressed with this young man."
