It's official

We got the letter today. The hubby and I are officially licensed as adoptive parents for a child aged 0-7. It only took 6 months. If it were a biological child your pregnant for almost 10.
I contacted "M's" SW Tuesday. Nothing to report. His bio A/U finished their home study, and are awaiting their caseworkers impressions. I was assured that they were hurrying that along. "M" has been TPR'd since November. They want to give him a forever home soon. Start the transitioning..somewhere...any where.
A PET was held at his childcare center. OT, DT, speech pathology, and his social worker were all involved. They are having his autism reevaluated. He is on the low end, very low end, of the spectrum. I (yes patting myself on the back) suggested this be done 2 weeks ago. It will change the way he is taught at the center. A good thing for "M".

Just when I start to feel that this is never going to happen for us, that "M" will go to the A/U, and that all hope is lost...I remember the beautiful children that I have. The joy that they bring me. I realize that I don't have it very bad. I should stop the whining. People have it worse...after all, our neighbor ran over a skunk with his snow blower yesterday.
