The Law

My day off this week was very productive and dealt with the law in a couple different ways. As AGCI reviewed our homestudy they requested that we each have a Last Will and Testament that specifically states the rights and care of our adopted children. Luckily we were able to get in the JAG office during walk in hours (and had to wait hours). We officially have new wills reflecting our future family. It was a little strange having them written about children we don't yet have but gives us a sense of how quickly this is coming to be!
After meeting with the lawyer I headed to the neighborhood law enforcement station. I filled out the forms requesting a local background investigation for both David and I. Though we have FBI clearance we apparently need EL Paso county to give us the go ahead too. Another step, luckily this one only cost $12.
Seriously, I will try and be better at keeping this updated...


  1. Glad you were able to get some stuff done! I had so much fun with you while I was there. Hope things move quickly from here on out for your little man b/c I can't wait to have a little nephew!

  2. :) so exciting. every piece of the puzzle is one step closer to seeing that big picture come into fruition. . .
