We have a court date!!

I can't believe it, but we already have our court date! It is scheduled for July 18th. That's in 2 weeks! Our agency thinks that, if all goes well, we'll be leaving for Addis by either July 28th or August 4th, but we have to wait and see. Kevin is in overdrive researching plane tickets and finishing painting, and I'm busy researching pediatricians and changing our vaccination appointments. I think the next few weeks are going to be very busy!

Also, Micah will be moved to the House of Hope this week. That is our agency's transition home - it has guest rooms and we have been invited to stay there, which we are so happy about- it sounds very nice and comfortable. And, we might even get new pictures this week (or early next week). So, if we have a successful court date on July 18th, I will be able to share them finally! :)

Off to watch some fireworks tonight! Happy4th!

    Hope you don't mind, but I've added a link to your blog on mine. My husband and I are in the starting phases of the adoption of our "dream baby" from Ethiopia and it's so encouraging to read your wonderful story. I'm a woman obsessed!

  5. Congratulations!!! How exciting!!! Our dd was so tickled that you wished her a Happy Birthday! She said, "Oh Momma, tell her I said thank-you!" That was so sweet, thanks!


    ps, I didn't ask permission, but I've included your blog in my links section. Let me know if that's okay...
