He Signed!

We found out today that the judge signed our guardianship paperwork before he left. That means that the orphanage director, Ms. Roy, can apply for Max's passport. This will be the big thing we wait for before we travel. There are also some paperwork things to be taken care of on our end, but usually the passport is the big last step.

This last step will fly by with so much to do. We've been waiting on our will so we could include Max in our guardianship plans. Now we can go ahead with that, make sure we're all packed appropriately, and train my Aunt Dawn in farm animal care! Now I'm thinking of a bunch of little things that I really need done for peace of mind before we leave. I'd better stop now before I get carried away and stressed out ;)

We are so happy to be in these final planning stages. Please pray for his passport to be issued quickly so we can have him in our arms soon!

As I mentioned on the forum, this news brings goose bumps. Max will soon be home with you forever
