I talked to Ariannah's social worker today and he informed me that the Interstate Request is now in the hands of our adoption agency. That is great news because it is almost the final step to bringing our daughter (I love saying that!!!) home. He suspects she will be able to come live with us within the next 2-3 weeks. Hopefully by Halloween :)
And since some of you are asking, yes we plan on keeping Ariannah as her name. She already knows it, and as much as I despise what her mother has done to her...I would like for her to be able to keep something from her birth family. We will change her middle and last name though. Her new legal name will be:
Ariannah Isabelle Smith!!!!
