Not That Anyone Is Counting...
In eleven days. Eleven short days until we will take a major step forward in making Iggy a member of this family forever.
Last month Iggy's biological parents signed a consent to have their parental rights terminated. It came as a shock to everyone as they were in court that day to have a judge hear the county's case for termination. It never made it to the judge.
Out of left field BioMom and all of the BioDads involved in this case (there are several siblings) signed consents. We were floored.
They have 30 days to change their minds and revoke the consent, but on day 31 if that has not happened, my little Iggy will be free and clear for adoption. That isn't to say that "Uncle SoandSo" or "Aunt Wherehaveyoubeen" cannot jump out of the woodwork and try to get custody, but it will be harder for them.
We have already been contacted by the adoption agency charged with this case and the wheels have been set in motion. It just might be time to start pinching myself...
