I haven't told anyone outside of my immediate family that we were planning on adopting out of foster care. I didn't know if we'd be approved or if something would happen that would halt the process. Well, we've made it through the classes, the background checks, the home studies...everything!
We started this process when I saw a little boy that went up for adoption after being in foster care for a little over 2 years. I can't yet disclose why he was removed but I can say I fell in love with him the moment I saw him. So, I found out today that we have been approved to go meet him!!! His name is Javon and he's 7 years old. This is the only picture I have at the moment. We'll be meeting him Wednesday, the day before our road trip to NY. We have to start with supervisef visits, then unsupervised. Eventually we'll do overnights and if everything goes well he'll be placed with us. If everything continues to go well, the judge will make the adoption final 3 months after he's placed with us. Please keep us in your thought and send positive vibes that Wednesday goes well!!!
