27 days..

Well it is offically September! Courts reopen September 27th! What does that mean..well we are praying that after they get things running again we will quickly get a phone call! One telling us when our court date is! Right now all we do is wait..... We may get a few days notice or a few weeks notice before we have to fly to Ethiopia. At this point we are hopeful that we will get an October court date. When courts closed they were already scheduling October 1st dates so...we pray that we get a court date within the first 2 weeks of October. Again we have no clue when until courts reopen and they call us. It has been a very hard wait so far. We first saw our childrens faces on July 15th, the courts closed Aug. 6th. It has been comforting to have traveling families take care packages for us and take beautiful pictures and video. It is still so difficult..I want to hold my children, look them in the eyes and tell them Im your Mom and I Love You!! They have only seen us in pictures also. I can't explain how you grow to love children that you have only seen in pictures and video but..I do! God put these children in my heart long before I ever saw thier picture! We have been praying for them for years! Now that we have seen thier precious faces and know thier names it makes us love them all the more! 27 days....

  1. Glad to hear that the courts will be re-opening this month. The time to meet your kids is fast approaching (though I'm sure it doesn't feel fast enough). Just found your blog today through another. We adopted boy-girl siblings from Ethiopia a year ago. All the best to you on your journey to expand your blessings!
