We signed a pre-adoption agreement today. I sort of felt like I was signing my life away. Of course, we got to look over all the medical history AFTER we had signed. Oh, I just love dealing with DHS. Now that I looked everything over, I think I'm going to commit to not looking at it again unless absolutely necessary (filling out medical papers or something). Because unfortunately there is nothing good. It sounds terrible but it's a lot of drug abuse and mental history in both parents and in their families. Even though C2 seems fairly normal now it just makes me way too nervous as he gets older. I am hoping environment opposed to genetics will have the biggest impact.
I was also a little surprised to hear that C2 has a 1/2 sibling on his father's side. We had known of a few that C1 has. And the sibling is about 5 years older so we were more thrown off that the bio mother had never mentioned it to us since we had asked.
Oh well, now we move forward. I am hoping it's a quick and painless process. She keeps saying 3-4 months but I'm kind of surprised that it will be that long. I am hoping for more like 1-2 months. We're also meeting with a potential adoptive family for C1 later this week. Well, actually Mary is since it's scheduled for the exact time that my mom's flight arrives. I am feeling more and more sad for C1 but I know it will be best for him to be moved and hopefully some healthy contact can be maintained amongst everyone.
