Well, it’s been a while since my last post. Turns out that after cajoling our adoption agency into helping us, that we only had a week to file under the new Colorado law, otherwise the family study would have lapsed, and we would have had to start all over again. Luckily we filed just in time with days to spare. Our adoption agency said we could file in the Denver courts because we had filed there for my adoption back in May. Turns out that because the agency isn’t legally involved in the second parent adoption, that the Denver court had to switch the case back to the Colorado Springs courts where we live. The file was sent incomplete in that transfer, so a couple of extra weeks were added trying to straighten the whole thing out.
Very loooooong story short, we have a court date! Yay! January 13, AJ and I are scheduled to go before the judge here in Colorado Springs and baby Joshua will have two daddies legally! We’re both relieved that the end of the journey is now in sight. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
