We have a court date for the Bean’s second parent adoption! It’s much sooner than we expected — July 26. I think there must have been some kind of a cancelation, because the lawyer wrote and told us we had to let her know immediately if we wanted it.
Contrary to my moodiness at the time of the home study, I’m feeling very happy and excited about this. These adoptions are pretty much pro forma in our state, so no one is going to say mean things to us. The paperwork judging us has already been submitted, so I can work on forgetting that part and just enjoy knowing that soon every state — including those we are traveling to and through in August to visit with our parents — will be required by the constitution to recognize our family as a family.
Woo! I think we will have to have a wee small party to celebrate.
