I am thrilled for you all. Years back a dear friend of mine came to accept that she would never have a child - she was (at 35) to old to adopt. Just before the UK brought in the law about private adoption she was 'given' a baby boy.
Alexander is now married with children of his own and looks like a real cross between his parents, fair like his mother, tall and features like his dad.
I hope this toddler brings as much happiness to your family as Alex did to his!
Thanks Foxhunter. Little Logan has already brought a smile to a lot of hearts in this family. Daughter and her hubby dreamed of having a family and were heartbroken when they learned that they could never have any of their own.
They spoke with an adoption attorney this morning. He is arranging for the required home study and says it should take about 4 - 6 months for all the required documentation and background checks to be completed. Babymomma has another six months after that to change her mind, but as of this morning, Babymomma is very happy with the way things were going.
There was one snag - seems her father and her stepsister are very unhappy that she is giving the Logan up for adoption, and have threatened to get an attorney to intervene. Fortunately, according to daughter's adoption attorney (and confirmed by the attorney I work with,) as far as the law is concerned, they have no legal status and other than spending a lot of money on an attorney for nothing, there isn't anything they can really do. There was never any intent on babymomma's or on daughter's part to prevent the grandparents from seeing the baby. That would just not be right at all...
