New Court Date, and an Update!

Today was full of great news! We received a new court date of August 4th, exactly two weeks away. Fabulous. We also received an unexpected update on our little princess! We got a new beautiful picture of her... still no smile, but someday we'll see it. She is just a gorgeous little girl, we must admit! Eli enjoyed looking at the new picture too, and noted that she is wearing a different color shirt :) In addition to the picture, we received a court document from Ethiopia pertaining to our daughter's history which was helpful for us in filling in a few "holes" from past information we have gotten. AND, we got the news that she has been moved from the Durame care center to the care center in the capitol city - Addis Ababa. This is exciting because other families who travel there to pick up their children in the next couple months will be able to hug and play with her for us :) Yeah! We love her so much already, and just want to be there now to scoop her up and bring her home. All in all, a great day :) Now we wait and we pray for a successful court date on the 4th! Travel could be as early as the very beginning of September if we pass...

  4. My husband and I are hoping to adopt from Ethiopia through Holt starting the beginning of the year. I've been enjoying your blog and am praying for you and your little one through your journey.
