We learned yesterday that another hearing has been set for Nov. 10. And then we have to wait 30 days, before our lawyer can file the Petition for Adoption. That will be filed around December 10, and finalized December 22.
We’ll call in and be ‘present’ on the phone, for the final hearing, Dec. 22.
You’re already our daughter. Our little girl.
Just in time for Christmas, your last name will be our last name and you’ll be all ours forever.
Yesterday, Mommy and Daddy went shopping.
Today, I have a suitcase with tiny little clothes I’m bringing with me when I go see you.
Tomorrow, Before we see you, Daddy and Mommy will go to court, to try to talk with the judge who holds your fate in his hands.
We met with your local caseworker Friday. This first of three meetings lasted nearly three hours. We didn’t talk about you very much, we mostly talked about daddy’s and mommy’s childhoods and our early lives. But we had photos of you on the table in front of us.
Friday night, we learned that there’s a court hearing for you on Wednesday morning.
Saturday, we called our attorney, who agreed to go court to represent us, because we’re 800 miles away.
But Sunday after talking with someone at church, we decided we needed to be in court, too.
So, we’ll see you Wednesday afternoon!
