We're off to Costa Rica!

Our caseworker called early this afternoon to tell us that we have our court and travel dates. We fly to San Jose on April 9 and appear before the judge on April 25.  After the court date, we begin the "consular" process -- but we really have no idea what that means. Our agency's information is limited because we are the first family to adopt from Costa Rica.  We are all, happily, learning as we go.  We will continue to post information about the process every step of the way.

And now, we're off to purchase our plane tickets ...

  3. Hi! My husband and I are matched with two beautiful children in Costa Rica, but it has taken a few weeks and we don't even have the papers to apply for the I-800 yet. I can really relate to your story. Thank you so much for writing. I'm so glad to hear you'll be traveling soon!
