Yep, we got our 1st hearing scheduled for May 20, 2009!
OK, for review...
This is where the Judge in Taiwan is presented all of the information in order to rule on the case. Wei-Che's birth mother will be present to state her intentions, and as far as I can tell our POA will be there to submit our intent to adopt him.
The next step will be the First Ruling, where the Judge states his/her decision, that is said to happen 1-3 months from the hearing, with the Final Ruling shortly after.
I wasn't expecting to hear this news so soon for some reason - so this was a delightful surprise yesterday!
I am hoping all of you have wonderful weekends!
