The ball is rolling and picking up speed!
Sorry it's been so long since I've posted.

I wanted to stop in and let you all know that the ball is rolling towards adoption and picking up speed!

Boo's case has been transfered to an adoption agency and we have a social work assigned to us that seems quite organized and efficient (refreshing, really)!

We've completed and submitted all the paperwork this social work delivered to us during her first home visit. I had the paperwork back to her the same week.

Friday we met with an adoption attorney and signed "Petition to Adopt" paperwork!

We're being told that we should have a finalization court date by end of August! We are so THRILLED! Of course, we'll believe it when it happens.

Please keep us in your prayers!

Thanks so much!
