COURT DATE!!!!!!

Like cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
Proverbs 25:25


We found out yesterday that we have a court date for July 24th. One more HUGE step toward getting our little guy. We have received new pics over the last few days as well from precious people that have traveled to Ethiopia. He is growing so fast!

If we have a successful first trip through courts, A will be forever in our arms mid-August! I can't type that without my eyes filling with tears. :)

We are so thankful to the Lord for this lastest blessing.

Hello. Congrats on the court date!!We are waiting on our court date also. I loved reading that you got a court date for late July, I have been so concerned about the courts shutting down for the rainy season that I didn't think that late was possible, so I was so happy to see yours.

We are adopting a 7 yr old and he has been in the Orphange for over a year now.

We are using International Adoption Guides, who are ya'll using?

God bless.
