Things seem to be progressing quite well towards the finalization of Selah's adoption.
On July 6th, about a week and a half after the court hearing, a court appointed social worker came to the House of Hope to do a home study on Selah. The social worker is writing up a report for the judge, and assuming the judge is satisfied, she (the judge) will issue First Decree. This simply means that she intends to finalize the adoption. If no biological family member comes forward within 10 days to contest the adoption, the judge will issue Final Degree, which means Selah is legally our daughter! This could be sooooon.... :)
We also learned that Selah is having a physical conducted next week as part of the process to get her visa from AIT (the American consulate in Tawian). There is some other paperwork that goes to AIT, but this is an important step in the process. When all of the ducks are in a row with AIT, the consulate can issue us a visa appointment = we travel to Taiwan!!!
Boy, I just love the way all these items are getting ticked of the check list towards completion!!!
