We Have a Court Date

I spoke with our caseworker Christy today and we are one step closer to bringing Baby M. home! A court date has been set for December 12th but, before anyone gets too excited, there are some stipulations. There is a new process in place for approving adoption paperwork which involves a second branch of the Ethiopian government. Because of this many families do not make it through court on the first try and need to be rescheduled for 1 1/2-2 months after the first date. We are being cautiously optimistic that we make it through the first time. That would mean we could travel as early as the first of January, making winter break from school that much more fun! We are also prepared to wait until February or March if things don't go our way in December. Everybody keep your fingers crossed for us!

We'll be saying many prayers too! Liam loved the video of Isabelle talking about the movie. Where was Aunt Darla for the musical movie?
