Questions for step-parent adopting families

Posted by   + Show Post

So i'm new to this group and i'm happy i found it.  My DF is adopting my DD and we are still going thru the process.  At this point we are getting tons of letters for DCF so they can come do a home visit and submit a report to the court.......  My question is, for the families that are past this point or have finalized everything.  How long did it take from this point to get everything finalized? 

How long did it take after DCF did their home visit to get a court date? 

How did your court date go?

Are there any surprises i should prepare myself and DF for? 

What kind of stuff did the judge ask/say?

Please ask any questions if need be.

Love that! " We traded" I may use that :)  Kids are so resiliant. We don't push our sons to call me mom, figure one day they will when they are ready, they are 5 and 6. They don't talk about mom but know who she is... we will see what the future holds!
