The judge signed the order today, officially waiving the waiting period for Hope’s adoption. We fly to Texas tomorrow night, pick up Hope Wednesday afternoon, and finalize her Thursday at 7:45 am. We will fly back to New York early Friday AM. I have never seen an adoption happen so quickly. I hope to have a chance to meet some fellow bloggers while in Texas. My oldest daughter is NOT happy about Hope coming. She feels Hope is a threat to her and her baby. I am not sure what to say to her. Anything I say runs the risk of setting her off. Her and Malachi will have an easier time functioning when the whole house is completely geared to small children.
