Congrats! You have to wait three months in Minnesota - I think my partner adopted our daughter three months to the day after I readopted her - which was already 3 months after we brought her home - and I just breathed a big sigh of relief when it was all done. Our daughter has 4 birth certificates and has been adopted 3 times. That oughta cover it, don't you think?

Congrats! I'm happy to see it can be done so fast in IL, since we'll hopefully be doing one here next year. Now I know who to ask when all the questions come up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Thanks, everyone! We were so excited when we left the courthouse this morning, and I really wanted to share our news with people who would understand. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

CONGRATULATIONS Susan, Julieanne and Will!! What fabulous news. We're waiting on ours to be finalized and will be as happy as you when it's all over especially since we used a known donor. I'm hoping it won't take more than 1 month to 6 weeks longer.

Congrats!! We nearly moved to IL this spring with the idea that DP could adopt DS there as being the one of two main reasons. Second parent adoptions are not allowed in our current state, Nebraska.
