Q is for Quick…..

     Adoption is not a QUICK process or at least mine was not QUICK.  My timeline is as followed:

Finding a family (2/26/14 to 4/8/14)
Officially matched (5/14)
Met my adoptive parents in person (7/14)
Open adoption plan (end of 7/14)

Our hospital plan (8/14)
Birth (8/14)
24 hours in the hospital (8/14)
Voluntary termination of parental rights (10/14)
Paternity results (11/14)
Hearing for jury trial (12/14)
Jury trial (2/15)
Four day for trial with eight hours of jury deliberations (2/15)
Phase two court date (3/15)
Agreement with Birth Father to terminate and have an open adoption (5/15)
Termination of voluntary termination of parental rights (5/15)
My son officially have his gotcha date and being legally adopted my his parents (11/16)

     I learned that Adoption is not the same as the next and timeline is unique or at least mine was.
