|Diego and I |
So, we moved on and changed our focus. That little goofy baby I had met that summer was now OUR goofy little baby. But before we could call me ours officially we had to wait some more. That summer things started happening...fast. Two families we knew, that were also adopting from ES, went and got their kids, and we found out we had been approved as a family and that we had been matched with Joel. Adoptions from ES are notoriously difficult and we were glad to have those things behind us. We just needed our court date. So we waited some more, of course!
