DOMINIC IS COMING HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got the call today... Dominic is legally our child!!! :) Our case has been approved and released by PGN (Guatemala Court). We should be able to bring him home within 4 - 6 weeks! The last two steps are for a second DNA test to be complete with just Dominic and for the US Embassy to schedule our Visa appointment. No problem!

Words cannot describe how I feel. I am in Pasadena, CA in executive meetings with my boss and everything is going in one ear and out the other!!! Dan and I are so happy and so blessed. Many, many thanks to our friends and family for supporting us through this incredibly long and difficult journey. There were times I didn't believe the adoption would complete, but he is coming home! More to follow as we learn details...

I am sitting here bawling my eyes out with relief, we just learned Dominic's birth mother interview is DONE and went fine. Our agency did not tell us it had been rescheduled so we have really been suffering. Our prayer is that our case goes through the rest of the Guatemala court process smoothly with no more curve balls, and we are able to bring him home soon. We could not make this journey without the love and support from our friends and family, and for that we are so thankful and truly blessed.

I have already decided that Dominic is going to be spoiled rotten and that's just the way it is going to be! :)

This Just In...

Thank you everyone for your follow-up messages. We just learned this afternoon that the interview did NOT take place. Dominic's birth mom could not get time from work to go to the interview. Our agency said the attorneys have banned together and filed an "amapro"which is some kind of legal action to STOP these interviews from happening. So, our interview will either be canceled or rescheduled. I am exhausted with anxiety about our case. I will update you again when we know more.
