This was big step for us. We did it ourselves with help of adoption online community. Some good souls share sample petition that we had to file with court. Yeah more paperwork. We filed it all about two moths ago and waited until the court day. It was November 26th. So on this day we had to go in front of Judge and explain the adoption. I think the whole meeting was about 5-10 minutes. We had to wait first in courtroom until it was our turn, but they took adoption cases first. Mei did great and I am glad they took us first ahead of the normal cases and that it was in judges chambers. Mei would not be quiet.
Here is our picture waiting in the courtroom.
And here is picture with Judge Bagley.
My adoption friends - you can email me if you have any question about this process, it is doable.
