Bart and John waited for a couple hours to get into court this morning, but discovered that John has a new attorney who is also an adoptive parent. She wants to gather some more information and she what she can do to help, so she convinced the judge to reschedule the hearing. John goes back 4 weeks from today. That means he has 28 days to work (hopefully full time) and to build a more positive case.
So for at least a month, he has a chance to move forward instead of sitting doing nothing. And in 28 days we'll see what happens next.
