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...) :)

  1. what else is there to say but WOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOO! :-)

  2. Have some Rosa's tacos for me...oh, and a Mama Josie's breaskfast burrito...did I mention some Abuelo's queso?

    Have a great time and tell everyone we know we said hello (especially Levi and Jess, if you're planning to see them - they've been so heavy on my heart this week!)

  3. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Wish we could be there for gotcha day. But we will be praying for the trip. Hope all goes well.
    Love you all,
    Nanny & Papa

  4. Yeah! We will be praying for your trip and "gotcha day". Give your sweet girl a hug from Vincent. : )
