The paperwork came yesterday for filing AFM’s adoption petition. Basically, our lawyer files this petition, then a SW does a follow up visit to make sure we’re all adjusting, and we get a court date for finalization. MAM’s adoption was finalized almost 4 months to the day she was born, and we are expecting this one to run in about the same.
I has to laugh at some of the legalize, “…said minor possesses no real or personal property of his own…..” yeah, when you are placed at 4 days of age, pretty much you come with the disposable diaper on your back 🙂
In reading about filing MAM’s petition (I sure am glad I document this stuff somewhere), I’ve made a mental note to enclose a check this time.
