Well today is one of those days that you feel like a huge burden has been lifted off your chest.
Long story I will try to make it very short. Bristol, Yes her adoption happened super fast so fast. When we found out we were going to get her we were so excited jumped for joy and then thought to ourselves we do not have one thing not one thing. We had gotten rid of everything because we thought we were done. Then a big push to apply again and bam here's your baby. So panic begin to set in and we spent two full days in Vegas shopping. The night before she was born we were feeling pretty ready. Felt good real good about everything. And we got a call that scared us a little ok a lot. The Birth father had contacted the agency and said to them i want this baby. (What )were has he been all this time, did he not tell the birth mom to get a abortion and dump her yes. The agency after talking to the birth mom told us that he was just trying to cause trouble. That he had no intention what so ever to raise this child. We contacted our attorney wanting to know all are rights and if we dare go threw with this. He assured us that everything would be fine. He ran a check on the birth dad found out he was a 10 time felon and no way would a judge ever give a child to him. Don't get me wrong if I had felt like this dad was a good guy and really wanting to take care of this child then yes, I would totally not stop him from having his child. But he was quite the piece of work to find out. so us our attorney and the agency made a plan that Bristol would be signed directly to us upon leaving the hospital. Most of the time the baby is signed to the agency until the adoption if final. But this was to protect everyone involved. And yes the attorney great guy said we can do this but it going to cost you. We figured. Only about 10 times as much as we paid him to finalize brielle adoption. But well worth it. It was called a very high risk adoption very. But we knew that Bristol was meant for our family and we knew that we needed to trust in the lord and he would not let us down. It seems like the last few years I have had to put my trust a lot in the lord. He hasn't let me down yet. The court day was set about 3 months ago and March 15 could not get her soon enough. We got a call early this morning from our attorney and he said Em I the man or Em I the man. Everything went great today in court the dads rights were terminated and your court date will be set in the next couple of weeks to finalize your adoption. Yes what a relief. Come to find out the Birth father never responded to anything the court sent him. he never showed up in court. Yes A huge stress lifted off of us.
