Adoption update

Just a quick update on the adoption-

About six weeks ago we received an email from Levi's caseworker saying that it was only a matter of our people talking to their people paperwork going back and forth between our attorney and the state before finalization. She said she thought it would take a month or so.

I liked the month part. The "or so"...not so much.

Then, a couple of weeks ago our adoption worker was here and said that Levi was still not showing as legally free in the computer system yet.

She checked with the caseworker, who checked with the attorney, who checked with the ADA, who checked with the appellate court can you see why nothing gets done? and was informed that they were backed up and not to expect the court ruling to be filed for a few more weeks.


But...yesterday we received our adoption assistance paperwork in the mail indicating that Levi is now officially "Legally free for adoption"!!!

Now, finally, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

It's been a long time coming...
