Our lawyer says that the court hearing to FINALIZE Samuel's adoption will be some time in the next 3 weeks. Not too specific...I know....I think about it every day! He's been ours, in the eyes of God, since the day we were chosen, but to have it FINALLY FINAL, in the eyes of the courts, is a BIG DEAL! So, in anticipation of this, I'm giving away a $25.00 gift certificate to STARBUCKS and a $25.00 gift certificate to WalMart for whomever guesses the court date.

1. Comment with a guess sometime between April 7th and May 1st.
2. Those that comment twice, to guess twice, will be deleted.
3. Do not guess a date that someone else has already chosen.
4. Be sure to leave an email address so I can contact you if you win.
5. You have until Monday, April 13th to make your guess (3pm MST).
6. If no one guesses the exact date, I will choose a random number and give the prize to the post that matches it.
7. What the about my give-away on your blog, send me the link, and I'll let you choose a second day too.

APRIL 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 27, 28, 29, 30 and May 1

I'm guessing April 30th because that is Big Boys bday. It's a good day.

I'm going to guess April 24th. I remember our attorney telling us that judges like to do adoptions on Fridays so they can end their week on a good note. Congrats!!

How exciting!!! (And fast! We were told we'd have to wait months for the finalization!)

Since there are only 19 possible dates, I like the odds of this contest! I choose April 16.

Well I have to guess the 15th since it's a special day for us. One year from the day we were chosen.

Hope your lawyer can give you a date soon. That's got to be crazy having it up in the air like that.
