Greetings, True Believers!
Court on 19 OCT went well. Very well. We were told to expect to have an adoption date set sometime in February or March. HUZZAH! I cannot wait to make the world an introduction to the kids, as we're not allowed to do so while they're still in foster care. No public photos, and I can't really even mention their full names.
So... if everything goes well with the 90-day waiting period - IE, no close relatives come unexpectedly out of the woodwork... Mary and I will be the legal parents of our foster kids and there will be much rejoicing.
(With apologies to The Man)
