We had a visit with their social worker, and are hopefully going to have a finalization date for early July!!! It will make me feel so much better to have a date. I have decided not to have a huge party, since we recently had a large baptism. We may do a fun lunch somewhere after the court date, then we are going on a big family vacation in July. To be honest, I can't wait to change their last names. It shouldn't matter, but I can't help but feel judgement for having two boys with different last names from each other and from me. It will be nice to have that permanence.
We all have come a long way in 5 months. Little J is your typical, mischevious toddler. Big J is attaching and learning to exoress himself. They both have such strong personalities. And are little comedians. D and I have adapted to parenting I think pretty well. It was a crash course, sink or swim. There were some days I thought we weren't going to make it. But I think we will all be just fine. I love watching my boys grow into little men.
