Today the lawyer received the updated home study, we agreed on visitation, and filed the petition in court. The lawyer says we should be able go to Texas the week of the 22nd (this week, next week ?) to finalize the adoption and pick up Hope. All we need is the court date and we may even get that this afternoon. Then again, everything has taken longer than the lawyer said it would, although he (the lawyer) said we are right on schedule.We still have to make travel arrangements. GB’s Dad spoke to the social worker in Hope’s class today, to verify school arrangements. This is going to be an exciting journey!
