Big News ... Maybe?

So, as most of you avid readers know (all 3 of you), the Ethiopian courts have been closed now for approximately two months. So, since that was the stage we were at with Abi's adoption, nothing much as happened.

Well, other than that whole going-to-adopt-Hana- too thing. ;)

But, things are starting to shake up again. Word on the street (and the "street" being a rumor from our adoption agency) is that courts will be OPEN starting Monday. Whoooooooooo!

What does that mean for us? Who the heck knows???

Unfortunately, it seems that Hana's paperwork is not fully gathered, approved, etc. Therefore, we wait. Once her portion of our file is set, we can submit both her and Abi's paperwork to the courts. We are still hoping to be filed this month and heard next month. But traveling by Xmas is looking more and more impossible. Sigh.

BUT thanks to the lovely cyber support of many new friends, I'm trying to take it in stride. The courts ARE opening and that is progress my friends! And, what I'm hoping is, that no matter if we travel in Dec, Jan or (God forbid) February, I will hopefully travel with an adoptive family I have come to know, at least electronically. So, it will come in time. Meanwhile we wait and prepare and miss children we have never met...

Please keep your fingers crossed that we get a court date soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. I tried to add an image to this post by searching "Ethiopian court" on images on google. Unfortunately, most did not make sense or were offensive. Sigh. So, because I wanted SOME picture, I just put in the U.S. Supreme Court. =)
