The agency plans to request finalization in mid-November, which is six months from O's release from NICU, since we have been caring for her from that date. However, the court may not accept that and may require six months from the adoption placement. Either way, we are in the home stretch of the adoption process. The last step should be a formality.
UPDATE: Just learned that the judge actually signed the papers on June 26th. Apparently some clerk simply forgot to let anyone know or mail the paperwork.
