Court Date!!

Found out this morning that our adoption case will be heard by the high court in Ethiopia next Friday, July 17th! Things continue to progress much quicker than expected, which is AMAZING but also keeps us in a state of shock. :) We have to remind ourselves that this is real and if we pass court we may be bringing our little girl home as soon as August or September! YIPPEE! The reality of the situation though, is that many families do not pass court the first time their case is heard. Many end up passing on a 2nd or 3rd court date. We are so blessed to have received a court date prior to the closure coming up, but now I feel very nervous about not passing. It's hard not to get my hopes up, and to think that failing court would mean waiting through the closure. Ugh. But, let's not dwell on that! Let's dwell on the awesome fact that we have a court date and that we JUST MIGHT PASS! :) Please pray for us and for our court case throughout the next 10 days. In the meantime, we have a HUGE garage sale in the works for this Saturday, so at least that will keep me busy over the next few days! Woo Hoo!
