WE HAVE A COURT DATE!!!!!

Praise God! We received word today that we will indeed be traveling to Ethiopia before the court closure! We were told that our first court date (the date we do not have to be present) is July 21st, and the second date will be August 5th (we will be present at this court date)!!! One day before the courts close!!! Only God!!! We had really been praying for the strength to trust him no matter what, I can honestly say that though we preferred to travel sooner, we were at peace with having to wait, as we know God knows what is best for our family!

As I received this news and it finally began to sink in that we had made it, the overwhelming feeling I experienced was just the love of God. I felt so loved by God. It is so hard to believe just how much God loves me and you! Don't get me wrong, I know it wouldn't have meant that he loved me or Zack, or Noah less if we had not made it before the courts close, it's just at times He gives us little tangible glimpses, and seems to do things, just for us. Oh, how he loves us!

We are busy trying to get our flights booked and make arrangements for our accommodations, but right now it looks as though we will be leaving for Ethiopia August 1, and returning on August 8.

I can't believe we will be meeting our son in 2 weeks!!!!

Congratulations on your court date! I just stumbled on your blog today. . . we will also be in Ethiopia for an Aug. 3 court date, so we understand the excitement at getting in before courts close! Yeah! (We are with another adoption agency--CWA, so we probably won't cross paths, but it is fun to touch base with others who are in the same process!)
