Gilbert Anthony Pattie


I was born October 3rd, 2009 at 9:30am at Banner Desert Hospital, Mesa, AZ.  I weighed 5lbs 0oz and was 18.5 inches long.

I was in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) for a week while the doctors made sure everything was working and I learned how to eat from a bottle.  They thought I was born at 33 1/3 weeks but revised it to probably 35 weeks.

My parents were there from the beginning (Friday the 2nd) and my birth mom let them name me.  I even have their last name, which was a first for the adoption lawyer!

They became my legal guardians on October 6th at 11:18am and I went home with them from the hospital on October 11th!  Now I’m just waiting for the adoption to finalize.

We legally severed all paternal parents rights March 11th, so now it’s just the finalization hearing and he is officially a Pattie! :)

The adoption was finalized April 15th at 8:45am!
