Your insurance plan should explicitly state whether or not it covers adoption. Is birthmom on Medicaid? If so, jake should be considered on it as well right now and if your insurance won't cover him before finalization he should be able to stay on Medicaid until then.

I am thinking that I will give her the locket and send her a picture.
Baby Jake is doing ok, but having a few problems with detox. They are on the fence right now about whether they should move him to the NICU. He is tiny, not quite 5lbs. Either my husband or I have been with him 24/7. We are trying to figure out how to get him covered on our insurance before the adoption is legally completed, since medical bills will probably be high. If he has to be in NICUfor a long period, we are hoping to transfer him closer to home, we are currently a 10 hour drive from home, and we can't keep the other kids here indefinitely.
I am feeling pretty stressed out right now with all the legal stuff... It makes my head spin, and I am just hoping that we can go home soon. It is an out of state adoption, so I guess there are days of court stuff to get through.
The legal stuff will be fine. Try to relax and focus on jake. Our adoption was put of state too. You are waiting on ICPC to clear which is the document that says you can take him across state lines to your home state. It doesn't generally take too long if your lawyer gets it filed right away.
