We have confirmation of paternity! The DNA results (finally!) came in and they show that C's father is the person who surrendered his rights and is also Lucy's father.
So, they are full biological sisters.
More importantly, we don't have to search out a different biological father and figure out if he (or his relatives) are going to take custody of C.
Now, we just move through the final hoop jumping and red tape of paperwork.
We're still being told a finalization date in December is a possibility. Mr D is hoping for it; I'm trying not to get my heart set on that. We shall see. It's all going to depend on how quickly this paperwork gets filed and signed off on. We've told the caseworker that we will essentially drop everything and come running at her call to sign the Intent to Adopt paperwork.
