We now have to wait for full details and medical background, which will arrive early next week. Once we have these documents we can talk to our social worker and get theirs and the LA's approval to accept this child. Then our LA will tell the DCSF they approve our adoption of this child and the DCSF will send us a letter giving us permission to travel to Ethiopia. Once we have this letter Me and Baby Sis will travel to Ethiopia for about a week to start the legal processes to adopt our little one, including applying in person for a Court Hearing Date. This date is likely to be about 8 weeks (ish) in the future. The whole family (minus Drama Teen who has chosen to stay at home with Grandparents) will travel back to Ethiopia to appear at the Court Hearing and then finalise all the other legal necessities that will allow us to bring our little one home with us. We will be in Ethiopia for about three weeks for this trip, and we are very excited about seeing and experiencing a tiny slice of our future child's birth country.
Life is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good :-)
