Well, court was pretty much a formality, as the adoption worker hasn’t started on our case yet. I met her, and she seems… ok. I am nervous that somehow me being a single parent, or having a small, older house, or whatnot will make her think I’m not an appropriate placement. Maybe that sounds silly on paper, but it terrifies me. Adoption opens you up to so much judgment.
There was another kinship placement there who got their adoption date. Smiles all around, judge included. I can’t wait for that to be me!
The judge asked if I wanted to say anything, then told me that my whole face lit up just at the mention of Jo Jo’s name. She always notes that it’s obvious I love my Jo Jo very much.
