Wow! It has been one month since the day that changed our lives forever! Let me tell you, I am amazed at how much you can love someone you have never met in one month! To celebrate, we are registering!!! Fun! Zack & I are heading up to Lexington later today and hitting Babies-r-Us wide open!
Did I mention that we are totally in love!!! Prayerfully, only a couple more months of waiting before we get to meet our precious son! I can't wait for you all to meet him too!!! So, when will we get to meet him????
Here is what we do know in terms of timing....
There is a group of around 7-8 families (I believe this is accurate) that already have court dates scheduled for October 8th, the first date the courts in Ethiopia reopen. If they pass court on this date (please be praying that they will!) they are scheduled to travel around October 24th. We will not know when our exact court date will be, but we can assume it will be shortly after this first group of families. Prayerfully, then, we should expect to travel sometime in November, most likely the mid to latter part. Please be praying for court for all families. I don't know if you remember what happened last year (families did not travel until the end of January!!!), but we do not want that to happen again, and most likely, it will not. Our agency has assured us that they have learned from last years experience and will do everything in their power to unite families with their children as quickly as possible.
Also, congrats to the Sloninger and Stager families who received their referrals yesterday! Whoo Hoo!!
Happy Labor Day everyone!!
