The State of Florida has determined that Mary and I would be good parents to a 15 month old boy, Ryan. So, on Monday they will be removing him from his current care givers and bringing him to us. Once the paper work and time requirements are met, we will be adopting him.
We are both excited and scared. We were hoping to have him today, but that didn't work out. We only found out about him and the possibility of this on Monday, so it is happening a lot faster than we expected. We had just finished the required classes and paperwork in the last 2 weeks.
So, we have gone from expecting a 7-12 year old and it taking 6 months to a year to a 15 month old in about a week.
I'll post up pics next week when we meet him for the first time at our home.
