After our 30 day recess from the court, we still didn't have the documents we needed and now have to go through a 6 month court-mandated "waiting period" before we can finalize our adoption. Nothing is wrong, nothing to be overly stressed about, it will go through...just Missouri does things differently than Arizona...and Arizona didn't have some documents (because they are not required by AZ) that MO requires. Since the documents didn't exist, we just have to wait.
Looks like we won't be able to finalize our adoption until June or July.
No worries. The biggest frustration is the part where, we can't start a NEW profile for a 3rd placement until after we finalize. And 6 months -- a whole 1/2 of a year-- is a LONG time in the "adoption waiting world." Considering we will probably be waiting a couple (maybe more) years for a placement...I want that 6 months back!
All will be well eventually.
