Days Away from a Decree?

I got an email from our agency last night letting us know that SLC spoke with the court and we could possibly have a decree by the end of JULY. That would be absolutely incredible! Given past cases, that would have us traveling sometime in September...

Funny thing: September is the end of summer and the beginning of the leaves changing in New England so that means 65 people who voted on our "When will Lucy come home" poll would be right! I'm not even going to mention those three 'glass half empty' people who voted Christmas and 2009. (wink, wink)

I've gotten lots of emails wondering if I've dropped off the face of the earth since I last posted. Sorry! I've been kicked down with a big-time case of the flu. Hey, but I did lose 5 of the 8 pounds I was aiming for. Who knew 48 hours of no food was the way to go.

I think everyone there knows you've paid your dues already!!!

nearly at the 15 month mark!

PS- so sorry for the flu! Horrible, horrible, horrible to have that during SUMMER! But, maybe you're just getting all the typical winter illness out of the way so no one in the family has to deal with it when Lucy is home!!!

That's wonderful news on the Decree front. Sorry to hear you've been sick. Lucy is coming home in time for HALLOWEEN! We plan to be out your way on Labor Day, so if you could make that work, and have Lucy home in time, let's head to Disneyland!
Hugs, Tiff

That's fabulous! September sounds about right - we traveled only seven weeks after first decree, with 12 days notice to travel! I'm soooo excited for all of you!

Lucy will be home before you know it!

WOW!! That is awesome, Jackie!!! Happy dances here tonight for the Mac family. :) September would be a beautiful month to travel.

Yuck on the flu!! What a weird time of year to get it. Glad it's over!

Super-fabulous! I love how the good news just keeps coming.

Hopefully it's only onwards and upwards for you with the flu.

BTW - what crazy person says you need to lose weight?!

Oh Jackie! I hope you're feeling better... I guess a possible travel time of Sept would make anyone perk right up!! Great news!
