That sounds a little like a Winnie the Pooh tale.
So today came and went with no mention of status update to being legally free for adoption. So are we left to assume that no news is good news? I think so.
Tomorrow I will reach out again to his adoption worker and request a status update. You will all know when we have signed the OFFICIAL adoption placement papers, as this blog will become photo central. I will also be contacting our attorney tomorrow to make sure she has everything she needs for finalization as she was proactive and sent us paperwork ahead of time.
*** Just to clarify adoption placement is not the same as finalization. Adoption placement means just that - he is officially 'placed' in our home for adoption nothing more nothing less. However, because he has been 'placed' as a non-relative more than 90 days we can proceed immediately from adoptive placement to finalization. ***
Thanks for caring enough to check in. I know many of you have been praying for us as we have inched towards today's deadline. I even received a beautiful card of encouragement in today's mail from a very sweet and thoughtful friend. The timing could not have been better - you know who you are - thank you.
Please stay tuned as I will update when there is anything to report.
Mini timeline update time -
Dec 13th or 14th sign adoptive placement paperwork
Sometime during the week of December 16th - FINALIZATION!
