It really wasn't all that long ago that we moved in together. We had practically just met. I didn't know what to expect. I'll admit, I was nervous. There was so much to consider. But once we were together, it honestly all seemed so "natural," like it was just meant to be. Looking back on our first year, things actually went along pretty smoothly as we got to know one another. I think we had and still have a great time and genuinely enjoy being together. Of course not everything has been perfect. There have been a few hiccups and a few things to work out along the way. But I can honestly say we've worked through it, and we share a close bond.
I guess in all the time we've been together, I've just forgotten that it should be made official. I've no doubt whatsoever that some people think we already are "official," and will be surprised to find that we weren't. I'll admit, this is all my fault, because I didn't see the importance of it. But "the powers that be" have insisted on it. They are right.
So, after nearly two years of living together, Cissy is now an "official" adopted member of Golden Pines. Her adoption fee and contract to the rescue has been filled out, and mailed.
