The Day is Near

Since my last post there has been a lot going on. We are getting very excited but again a little stand offish as we can not believe that in a couple of days we could finally become Dad and Papi.

Juan and I have done some homework and we are still stuck in the middle trying to decide what route we are planning on taking. Monday we went to a guardian class that basically told us what we have to do and the cost that are all involved in becoming a legal guardian. In San Diego County and maybe the entire state of California t=it cost about $1000 to just become a legal guardian. Not to mention all the homework that is involved. There are alternative routes that we are mostly going to take while we are waiting for the adoption to finalize. Apparently the mother is able to sign a letter of consent and have it notarized and also have a affidavit saying that Juan and myself are legally in charge of the child.

This week we have also gone and tried to prepare as much as we can for this child. We went to Walmart and stocked up on all the essentials that one would have if they had children in the home.

My brother and sister-in-Law are also helping out as they are willing to let me go through their storage and pick what i think that is needed for this child. (Thank you Guys)

I know that we will never be prepared but i think that we are as prepared as we can be for this child.

I know thins is just the start of the battle to actually have the child adopted but it will be well worth it in the end.
