When Carter turned three weeks old, we took a deep breath. Why? Because the birth father had 21 days to appeal the adoption and gain custody of him. Obviously whatever God had planned needed to happen but we prayed Gods plan was to allow us to keep our son.... An he did. And Carter is almost officially ours!
We had a one month follow up, we will soon have a three month then a six month then he is legally ours for good!!!
As long as we are suitable parents Carter is ours forever but will not legally become a Hamby until 6 months of age. We don't mind, he has been ours since the day we were chosen.
