Maybe, Almost Official?

Well, let's try this again…last month we were set to have a "status hearing" with all the mucky mucks at Childrens Court and with the Dept of Child Welfare, our lawyers, the GAL, etc…and it got cancelled…we have been fostering C for 20 months…he has been TPR'd for a year this month..still not adopted. Now, I got word today that we have a new date, July 8th…and that if the stars are aligned maybe the Judge will even do an adoption on that date…maybe…so now our adoption worker is scrambling, and she's new to the case and the bureau for all I know…and isn't sure what all needs to be done but knows it needs to be done fast…ugh! Since we are lesbians our case is doubly fun…as we are trying to do something that has not been done before in our city…I can't even talk about what it is…but it is HUGE…and sadly…it shouldn't even be HUGE…but it is…and we have lawyers, and blah de blah blah…our cheap State adoption (they say to adopt in the foster system it's only like $43 to cover all the paperwork fees at adoption time) has become a long, expensive process…but I do not care as long as that boy is OURS…no her's, not mine…OURS…TWO MOMMIES! Legally and on paper…he's only ever had two mommies, it's all he knows…and he is entitled to it! Keep your fingers crossed…keep them crossed that we keep our date in court and that it is all speedy and in our favor and done with soon…

I want to have a party already! I want a sigh of relief that he is going nowhere…a sigh at least for a minute as his sisters crap is just starting….
