My son Cliff is adopted.  Amalie and I knew him from about the age of 10, but we adopted him in the mid 90’s when he was an adult.  At that time we asked him if he wanted to change his last name to Meyer, or keep his own.  He chose to keep his own name.

Then just a few weeks ago something interesting happened.  The following is a clipping from the Legal Notices section of our local paper.  I hope it is sufficiently legible.

  1. Cliff looked the happiest ever when I saw you two a week ago. What a huge gift he gave you: he adopted you back.

  2. Don, I don't know you but I know you love your son! Your appreciation and respect comes through in all you post.

  3. As I said yesterday, Congratulations!

  4. Oh wow! That gave my such a huge case of the warm fuzzies! (Cliff's name, not the cartoon, that just gave me the giggles :-}
