We got our court date....

Late yesterday we received an e-mail that said we had gotten our court date...and it's TOMORROW (November 18th)! I just can't believe it. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to notify us. If the court approves us, then our son will legally be ours and we can go and bring him home. The bad news is that they have also told us it will take a week to notify us if we passed court or not. So we'll be waiting...yet again. Either way, this is it...we are running through the last mile of our very long race.

So we are asking just one more time if you could please join us and pray for our little one on November 18th. Pray for the paperwork, that it will all be in order and that there will be no delays (we have no control over this, as the Ethiopian government puts it together for us). Pray for speed, that these last few documents will be processed extremely fast. And please pray for us, this is so very hard as we can see the finish line but just can't quite get there yet.

We know that God is with us through all of this, but it sure does help to have some fierce prayer warriors walking along side us as well.


  1. Oh how exciting. I will be praying!

    Will you go in December? Are you taking the kids?

  2. Yay! Did they give you a time frame for travel? We got great news yesterday too! On the homestretch now!

  3. Praying now and when I wake up in the middle of the night. ;)
