Civil Ruling!!!!

Woo hoo!!! Our case worker just called to let us know we received our civil ruling today!! I am SO SO SO happy and am shaking so bad it's really hard to type!! :)

This is a HUGE step. It basically means the judge has decided favorably on our case and is notifying all pertinent parties that he plans to sign off on the adoption. Our final ruling should come anywhere within 3-8 weeks and we'll travel shortly after.

Thank you for all your positive thoughts and prayers...they worked!
