the secret's out...
We're headed to Texas later this week! For my adoption to be finalized, we have a court date in Lubbock next Monday, Oct. 13th at 9:00am. (what we're calling "Gotcha Day"!) We are so excited! A friend from our former church is a lawyer, and he has graciously offered his services to us for free. Wow!
There's nothing scary about this court date-- it should be short and sweet, ending in clapping and pictures with the judge! (hopefully he or she will have time!) The judge will make Mommy & Daddy my legal parents and change my name legally to Caroline Elizabeth Corbett! (Right now I "legally" still belong to our adoption agency because Texas adoptions take at least six months to finalize.)
What makes this even MORE wonderful is that not only do we get to spend a long weekend with our former RUF students, friends, and church family, but we get to eat MEXICAN FOOD AGAIN!!! (well, I don't...) :)
