We Have a Court Date!

Ahhh, this is turning out to be the best Friday EVER (I'll admit, I WAS a little tired and grumpy after braving the crowds to see the midnight showing of Hunger Games)!

We found out from our agency's director today that our court date is April 24th!!!  We need to arrive in Ethiopia by the 23rd.  Praise God!  We finally get to meet our son!  I got an email today while I was meeting with my 3 teachers that I team with (I told you earlier that I am a compulsive email checker.  I take it everywhere hoping for good news!) and I just started crying!  They all started to get emotional too.  It was such a great moment to share with some of my sweetest friends.

I'm still trying to figure out about remaining in country or not (more than likely not since I'm a teacher and don't want to have to go right back to work upon returning home with him), but for now we're elated to be going at all! 

My Spring Break is April 2-6, so I'll be working on the nursery, packing, etc.  Thank you for all of the thoughts, prayers, and well wishes on our behalf. We can't wait to meet our sweet Hayes! Pin It


  1. So excited for you!! I'll be praying for a safe trip and strong bonding. Can't wait to get updates. Our agency has a SUPER long wait list right now so I'm living vicariously through others' referrals. Congrats on the court date. You'll be there in no time!!!

  2. YAY!!! Praise the Lord!!! So happy for ya'll! :)

  3. What a blessing! SO happy for you! :D

  4. So excited for you both...can't wait to hear all about it.

  5. Congratulations! What wonderful news for your (growing) family!
