We have a court date!!


We have a court date!

March 1 at 10:00 am

we will go to court to finalize our adoption of Hannes!

And then we can share photos of him
with all of you!
And publicly say where we are!

Next steps:

There is a mandatory ten business day
waiting period.

The purpose of this is to allow anyone who wishes to
contest the court decision.

After the waiting period is over,
we can pick up the court decree.

We then use that to change his birth certificate
to his new name
list us as his parents.

Then we also need to apply for his passport.
Once we receive it, we travel to the capital of this country.

Then we go to the US Embassy to apply
for a visa to bring him to the US.

The particular visa we are applying for will make
him a US citizen when he lands on US soil.

After our 10 day wait, 
the rest should only take about a week and a half!!

Then we come home!
