Our adoption petition was received today and we've signed, notarized, and already sent it back to the agency. Still no baby pic but we're one step closer to a travel date.
Once the court receives our signed petition they will go ahead and set a court date and with that, we can go ahead and book travel. The agency says that families typically travel within 3 weeks of the petition so with that in mind, we could be on our way to the Marshall Islands the week of my Dad's birthday! Really, could I get him a better present than that?
