Approved!

Our Parentage Petition was approved! Thank goodness! We are now the legal parents of our unborn children! :)

We've been checking with the agency since early December. I think they were lax on things because when the holidays came around, all of a sudden THEY got nervous. They told us they were trying to get an answer every day, but no one was responding to them. Once we were past 31 weeks WITH TWINS I reminded them things could happen any time! And what a mess it would have been if she'd given birth without the pre-birth order! We wouldn't have been able to go into the NICU (if needed) or do anything without Gabby's permission. But luckily, persistence paid off and they got it approved administratively on Friday!

Bring on the babies! (in six weeks, not sooner :)

  5. One more thing crossed off the list of things to get done before those babies are here. And yes in 6 weeks is preferred versus sooner.
