The hearing to terminate Emily's legal father's rights was today and termination was granted. She's free! We are hoping to finalize her adoption on November 18, National Adoption Day. I emailed our attorney today to see if that will be possible.
Regardless, there will be one more stocking hanging on our mantle this year.
Emily and I are flying to Houston tomorrow to visit my sister and parents. My other sister and her family are coming down from Dallas for the day and my niece is coming home from college for the weekend. I will also get to see my friend Kristen of WeAreThatFamily and Mercy House. It's going to be a whirlwind weekend but I can't wait!
