Paperwork, Lawyers, and Court Dates... Oh My

When you adopt from Guatemala you create a Dossier that involves pages and pages and pages of paperwork. When you get to Guatemala they hand you another pack of paperwork to take to the US Embassy. You would think that once you reach the USA you are home free, but not so... We brought Will home with everything finalized in Guatemala, but are required to re-adopt him in the state of Kentucky.

The Ring family got up early this morning, drove downtown in the midst of wrecks and rain, and got to meet our lawyer for the first time! Blake and I had some documents to sign in order to get Will's re-adoption moving. We were informed the name of the judge that will precide over our case and told that within 2 to 3 months we should have a set court date to finalize it all!

The process will also involve Will being granted US Citizenship and his name being officially changed from Julio Cesar Ring to William Thomas Ring.

This is the FINAL process in Will's adoption and we are thrilled that everything will finally be done! But would we do it all over for Will?... We would do it over and over and over again. Will is our greatest source of joy!
