And here we are at post 700 so almost, ALMOST done.
Yes friends almost. We had court yesterday. The first of 2 court dates to adopt this child living with us for just under a year. I thought that day would be a nice day instead it turned into some frustration when I learned what the day actually meant. I mean I thought it was *adoption* day....ya know YEAH kind of stuff!!!!!!
When in all actuality it was just our request to the court systems to keep her......from what I can gather. So now the judge needs something from our home study agency. A cross between the home study and the post placements. URGH.
She had NO IDEA what was going on........so this is what we get :)
We, and by we I mean just the lawyer, has court on the 15th. We should hear something a few days after that. THEN her papers will go to the State Capital to issue a birth certificate. Then we get that and will apply for a US Passport for her. THEN we will take the New Birth Certificate and the Passport to apply for her SSN :)
So basically we will get a month or 2 between adoption paperwork ;) WOO HOO!!!!
Ah well, we'll hit one when it's good and FINAL!!!!!
ETA: Did the judge ask you questions about your desire to adopt her?
Yes, he asked how it was going, how she was adjusting, he asked briefly about travel, where the kids went to school, what grades they were in. Where James worked. What else I did besides home school the kids ;)
Nothing Major.....oh yea he asked why we have 2 L's in her name LOL!! So I had to not look OCD and tell him all 4 of the kids names are spelled with 7 letters sooooo........we had to add an L ;)
