"Like cool water to a weary soul, so is good news from a far country."
It is no secret that we have had our share of disappointing news since we started the adoption process almost 2 years and three countries ago. We still have our ups and downs where that's concerned, but today we got some good news from Ethiopia. Our paperwork has been submitted to the courts. We should know what our court date is about a week from now. (We expect it to be sometime after the New Year.) If we pass court the first go-around, we should be able to bring the girls home five weeks after the court date. This is further than we have ever gotten before, so it is indeed good news.
