Legal Update

We met our attorney today, and she seems very knowledgable and personable. Our guardianship court date will be set for 5-6 weeks from now. We could be appointed guardians on that day, or there could be delays if it is contested.

After the guardianship is established we will wait two years to apply for adoption. Two years seems like such a long time, but that is how long the courts like to wait in guardianship cases before terminating biological parental rights.

Deep breath...

This is an uncertain path.

all of life is an uncertain path. my grandmother used to always say, "life is what happens while you're makin' plans." that's why we rest in the knowledge of God's goodness and holiness... particularly during the times when our "comfort zone" is being stretched!

Amen sister Jill, couldn't have said it better! Still praying for you & those twinkies - they are so blessed to have you, whether it be as legal guardianship's or parents - I don't think they care just as long as they have you :}

So does that mean the girls will live with you if you are appointed guardians?

Yes, the girls will come live with us when we are appointed guardians. That could be as soon as Christmas!
