Making myself smile

Yesterday as I was waiting for the news and needed a distraction, I found this site.  It was a big hit on facebook and it kept me occupied for quite a while. Today as I am waiting again, I decided to look up how to fix something in wordpress for Meg, I stumbled across another fun find….



Why

Our case was not heard today, even though all the paperwork was in order.  The Ministry of Woman’s Affairs wanted a meeting to clarify why the piece of paper was incorrect last week and they did not have time today to have the meeting.  There is a meeting tomorrow with our agency, the orphanage, and MOWA…



Not it

Today was not it either.  We might hear something tomorrow, or next week.



Hanging with Abby, Court tomorrow

Yesterday Abby and I hung out for a few hours.  We had a lot of fun.  She is getting very talkative!  She loves to rollover and play in her exersaucer.  Can’t wait to see her and the boys play together.   Tomorrow is our 2nd court date.  We received word this morning that the piece…



Last Friday

10 families did not pass court last Friday, we were the only ones rescheduled.  The other nine families didn’t even have their cases heard.  When I heard why they didn’t pass on Friday I was absolutely devastated for them, and worried for the future of the Ethiopia adoption program.  Unfortunately not all people involved in international adoption act…



Today was not the day :(

We didn’t pass court today.  One piece of paper did not have both boys names on it.  Something so simple!  We are both bummed.  I really wanted to share the boys with ya’ll today, more than anything. Our new court date is May 14.  So please pray for that one stinken piece of paper to…



Today is the day!

I am so excited to find out the news today.  I truly believe court was a positive outcome.  We will hopefully find out by 11 am our time, but that isn’t a guarantee. On another note, yesterday we figured out for sure that the boys are not identical.  We were originally told they were, but…



1 Day! 1 Day! 1 Day!

  I am so excited!  Only one day left until the boys legally become ours!  (Yes I know there is a chance it won’t happen tomorrow, but I am trying to be optimistic.)  Sometime while we sleep tonight a judge on the other side of the world will decide the fate of our family.  She…
