Because the tweets of my day will not last forever, here is the summary.
For a couple hours this morning my life was over-taken with calls from the social worker, and text messages to and from David and Evan. It would have been a little simpler if all this had happened when I was not in class. Fortunately my students were very indulgent. I told them what was going on. It all, amazingly came together.
Carl will be getting in to the airport here this evening. David will pick him up and spend they both will spend the night. Evan is coming in the morning.
I emailed my classes tomorrow to tell them class was cancelled.
Andrew and I went to Costco and bought lots of food.
The dog groomer called to remind me of an appointment tomorrow, I rescheduled.
My new glasses came in, so I ran by the optometrist.
Gary was upset because Brian was supposed to take a form to school so that he (Gary) could go to a dance this weekend. When I told him that Brian wasn't going to school he said, "All day? Isn't the adoption just in the morning?" Roland managed to scan the document and email it to the girlfriend so she can turn it in. Fortunately THAT crisis was averted.
It is so strange. For months we have been just waiting, wondering. We went rather suddenly from "some time in the future" to TOMORROW!
The state social worker just called. Helen, Gary's sister, is going to be there too. I'm very pleased. I was planning on inviting her, but wasn't sure it would work out with such little notice.
