I can remember the excitement 1st time round with DS��
This time round I have that icky feeling of dread and excitement. Sounds odd, but cos we've been through the turmoil and disruption of concurrent planning - it's surreal to think we are nearing the final adoption hurdle. I dread it cos, I can't bear another mistake or delay by social services. I pray this will be it.
Fingers crossed blush

It probably differs between courts but we were telephoned on the afternoon of the direction hearing to be told that the adoption had been made legal. We were then given the date for our adoption celebration hearing which was a few weeks later.

It was different with our first DC in that the day we attended court was the actual day the judge signs off the adoption.

They're keeping you in the loop, making sure you know who has 'custody' of the paperwork.

Good luck and hopefully you'll receive a date soon - but that will really depend on how busy they system is at the moment.

Things may as well be going in reverse!
I called for an update...........Apparently the judge agrees papers r in order then decides a date for direction hearing. This had not yet been donehmm

I have no idea.

But it can't be long now smile.

No words of wisdom.

Just wanted to say hope it all goes well.

We are chuffed.

Got a call on Friday from the legal clerk who said our application would be going to the judge on Monday. grin
What will the judge be doing with it?
What decision will be made?
Will we get a court date? I hope sosmile

Any ideas what the Judges first action is?

Thanks.
