Now we wait for our court date..... We have signed a power of attorney so that our agency can represent us in court in Ethiopia to legally adopt Olivia "S". But first our paperwork has to be merged with hers and it has to be submitted and go through some bureaucracy over there before they can issue us a date. Normally people get there court dates around 4 weeks after they get "the call." So roughly mid May we should hear something. In the meantime I believe we get to send a care package, have a conference call with someone at our agency regarding a transition plan on bringing her home, have some conference calls on traveling procedures, yada yada yada. No I kid, seriously though, every step is exciting and one step closer to bringing her home. To give you an idea the families that received "the call" in February and March have mostly been given May court dates. So in mid May I am expecting a call to say we have a late June court date.....now I am hesitant to expect because I expected a March "call" and instead got an April "call". We are just praying that we can get a June or July court date and be able to travel before RAINY SEASON (cue the bum bum bum music). Rainy season is when all the courts close down for August and September. AND we are praying that we PASS court the FIRST TIME!
Could you join us in praying for those things?
I hope this all makes sense....send me a comment if you have any questions about it!!
