Long story short:
We gave our consent to the adoption. The judge told us they are waiting on one more piece of paperwork from Jude's regional government. They will get it soon and the judge told us we will finalize our adoption on November 4. We do not have to stay until then. It can be finalized without us, since we appeared in court and gave our consent in person.
Fun fact: We never dreamed of getting a son for our 11 year wedding anniversary. Can't top that, right?!
Thanks for all the continued prayers and support. We will be leaving tomorrow night. Prayers for safe travels once more, please.
