Mary Grace - Just a lurker here. I am so happy for you. Will be praying and can't wait to hear more as things progress.

I so happy for you! I know you've been wanting this for so long!

Dawn said...

This is so exciting. I thrilled for you. Congrats on being a new Mommy again!

Lorri said...

Wow! Congrats and welcome back to toddlerville.

Karla said...

How exciting!!!

(What is TPR?)

Laura said...

I can't wait to read as the details unfold. It is delightful to hear such news.

We are walking this path as well. Our now 19-month old adoptive son has been with us 5 months and adds great joy. Our 10-month old foster baby had his TPR hearing last week where his biological Mom relinquished. Now waiting for Dad to do the same. Prayerfully.

What a journey you will be experiencing. I pray that your path is straight and filled with much joy!

Wow!!! I was about 6 posts behind in my reading, so I got all of this development in about 5 minutes!! I'm so excited for y'all.

Our permanency hearing for the 18-month-old girl we're trying to adopt keeps getting put off (a month at a time), but the next one is scheduled for Feb 18.

Hopefully, we'll be able to move forward with that very soon.

Exciting stuff!! :) :) :)

Woohoo! Awesome! Ok, ok, so what happens now??

By the way, Karla:

TPR = Termination of Parental Rights

It's the legal process by which children are freed for adoption. Without TPR (or a relinquishment of rights), that child is not available for adoption.
