Today was our big day- a judge decided after hearing our case and supporting testimony from others to grant us our request to adopt the two boys. Yeah!
We had a fairly flexible no-nonsense judge who was efficient and the whole process was done in less than 2 hours. The decision will still need to wait 40 days to be final. But today's decision allowed for the adoption service to provide needed paperwork to the baby house for the boys to be released to us.
We arranged to pick up the boys tomorrow morning to bring them home- wow it is almost strange to be on this side of the proceedure! But we are quite happy of course.
So now I need to go and focus on having things ready here and when we get a chance... we'll tell more- especially about the first day home!
