Here we are now in January of 2010. Sabrina is closing in on 9 months old and her adoption is still not final. It should have been done when she was somewhere between 6-7 months, so we've been trying to get this finished since the end of October. First our lawyer (who actually, I love and think does a fantastic job) took a long time to get us the documents we needed to sign. Since he's in Northern California and we're here in Righteous Town AZ, we couldn't just go get them. We signed and sent them in and got them back about mid December. (I'm sure they were slowed down by the War. No not that one. The War On Christmas. You need to watch more Fox News...) I had to get some copies, then sent them off to the adoption agency. They were closed the last two weeks, so they only just sent their part off to the court yesterday. Once they finally get there, we'll be able to get a date for the hearing. I'm telling you, if you had to do all this to have a baby every time, the History Channel's "Life After People" would be happening in one generation. I just hope we get it all finished before the end of the month. I can see it now, "Sorry Sabrina you can't go to the Prom, we have to go finalize your adoption".
