Readoption Day! We had to get Livi legalized in the states (her citizenship not her actual adoption) and change her name to Olivia Shataye :)

realizing I should of taught my dad how to use the zoom on my camera:)

the court room is fun on adoption day!

waiting for our names to be called

waiting with PopPop's glasses on

finally our turn with squirmy kiddos

this one with the judge is a little blurry but the other one has Livi's eyes closed.....yeah I can never get good shots!
