Adoption Hearing Continued

Our adoption hearing was continued to tomorrow. Apparently when caseworkers changed things were not completed and the termination paperwork was not filed so it did not happen. The bio parents showed up today to contest the termination and adoption. We are before a different judge who doesn't have all of the history. Our son hasn't seen his bio family in 15 months. Please pray that the new caseworker will be able to read all of the file and be prepared to testify why the parents rights should be terminated so our son will not have to begin visitations again.

Update: Just got a call from our adoption specialist and after I called the previous caseworker earlier today, she called him and offered to testify!!!! Keep praying.

A very Dirty Boy!

We have been painting our trim work this week. Our house is around 70 years old and the trim was in need of a new coat and we decided to add some color to it. (I'll slip out in a bit and add a photo)

Last night while I was setting up for a garage sale and Joe was cleaning up the paint, our son located some cars to drive in the gravel. He was playing so nicely that I wasn't paying much attention to what he was doing until he showed up in the garage looking like this!

Putting up privacy fence

It has been a very lazy Sunday afternoon. After church and a visit to little man was way too wound up to stay very long. I have been helping my hubby, Joe, to make some items for his Uppercase Living open house.

We are also putting up a privacy fence. I want to use an old door for the gate. I just need to find one! Let me know what you think of the idea I nabbed from a gift shop in Dresden, Ohio earlier this summer.

Super Savings with Longaberger this week

We have an adoption date!!!!!

We went to the mailbox this morning and discovered a notice from the juvenile court that we have an adoption date for September 29. Our little guy has been in our home since last September as an adoptive placement and we may finally be at the end. The county suddenly realised that we needed the adoptive parent training (we've been asking for a year) and we begin that a week before our adoption date. Keep your fingers crossed that this will be the final court date.

Cleaning up

There haven't been many views this week. Rainy weather and duties at home have changed my schedule quite a bit. I am trying to get myself re-organized so I will be able to travel for the next few weeks. The beginning of the school year always presents a challenge for making visits to child care programs. We are preparing to paint the windows on our old home and gearing up for the Holiday Season with out Longaberger Business and out Uppercase Living business. We are still waiting for adoption to go through and hoping it will happen soon. It seems like everything with this process has been hurry up and wait, wait, wait!
