National Adoption Day

This post was originally published in MEM's MEMOS on November 17, 2007

Today is National Adoption Day! What exactly does that mean? It means that today courts and judges from all over the U.S. will be devoting the entire day to finalizing thousands of adoptions! How nice for lawyers and judges involved in Family Law cases to bring families together as part of their job rather than having to see families torn apart through divorce and custody hearings, etc.

Only 3 ½ more months till we can go to court and get M’s adoption finalized! [In the state of Utah couples adopting domestically must wait six months before an adoption is legal. The couple has guardianship of the child as soon as the birthparents relinquish their parental rights, but the child is technically in custody of the adoption agency for the first six months.]
