The judge finally set our adoption date. My lawyer stopped by my office and told me in person. All I could do was hug her and cry. She said it’s a good day and it’s before Thanksgiving and Christmas. She said he also approved my court papers being sealed. We had petitioned that because of all the false lies online about me or using my name. The judge looked it up and granted it.
Because of that I will not be posting when the boys are adopted. Just one day months from now just mention it. This gives me time to get my family in town for that day and have a huge party to celebrate. We didn’t get to have a baby shower because why would I do that? But we will be having an adoption party. I asked their birth mom to come and she said she will be there with her parents. I asked her if she wanted me to text their birth father and she said that she was fine with that. He already responded. He told me congrats, to take care of them but sorry he’s not coming. I understand. I felt it was the right thing to do to try. For them and for him. I also asked their birth mom would it be okay to do family pictures with her on that day and she said yes. She is really happy for them. She is happy for me. And she is happy they are becoming officially my boys.
Adoption is not easy. It’s a hurry up and wait game that I don’t like. No amount of money will hurry it up. No who might know the judge, who is friends with the court clerk, nothing works. It’s a process. It takes time, and it really is important to try and stay positive. I know a lot of people who have to wait much longer than I did. It helped that my adoption was a kinship and we took care of most of the paperwork before they were even born.
Lindsay was in the office with me when I got the news. I called her in and told her. She jumped into my arms and we hugged then she said OMG I get to plan their whole party and left the office Lol That was her excuse today to leave. We have time, it’s not happening tomorrow, but geez. I’m going to hire that party planner I had for the other party. She stressed me out but she created a very beautiful party. I bet she blocked my number. I was not very helpful to her. I kept telling her just do whatever looks nice I don’t care. She said it was very stressful for her to work like that. She’s used to people having opinions or at least a little guidance. I didn’t give her anything to work with at all. I just said make it look good. Wow me. That was about it.
I got home tonight and told the boys. They just looked at me. They have no idea. It’s a big day for our family. I can’t wait. I probably won’t sleep much tonight I’m so excited. I need to go make some phone calls and answer some texts and emails. Word spread fast in my circle of people. Everyone is so happy for us. I can’t wait to party and feel like a whole family finally. This was the last piece.
Anyone else still waiting for their adoption court date I pray you get it soon. I know how hard it can be. It’s worth the wait.
I am so happy! Heston and Alex will finally be adopted! Isn’t that great news!
