I got a call from our case worker yesterday. She said that the meeting with the attorney went really well.
I’m told that they will not be able to take the birthfather to court until after the baby is born. The court date is usually scheduled 4-8 weeks after the baby is born, so we will still take the baby home from the hospital, but have the potential of having to give the child up if it doesn’t go our way. Anything could happen now… he could change his mind again and go along with the adoption or he could hire an attorney and fight this to the end.
We will be praying that he changes his mind and that things come together for our attorney quickly as we will be paying the bill for this attorney (on top of the other adoption costs). Thanks for all your support and prayers! Tim and I really appreciate and can feel your prayers.
I thought I would end with finally posting some of our nursery pictures. We finished the nursery even before we were selected, so it is pretty gender neutral. We have a rocking chair in there now (not pictured). Before too long we will have a full baby room with toys, swing, etc. Thanks to Amanda Troyer for the awesome “jungle” pictures on the wall and the lion light.
Our neighbor had a garage sale the other day and gave me about 3-4 bags of clothes, crib items, and all kinds of other basic things. I think I have A LOT to learn about what we need… she was telling me a lot that I didn’t know.
I still don’t have the ultrasound pictures scanned in… I will post those soon. Thanks again for all of you that are praying for us!
