The Court Details Become Clearer (And More Positive)

We got more detailed word today from the lawyer in Ethiopia who is handling our case, and the news is more positive. Apparently the birthfather corrected the misspelling of his name on his ID card, but the judge told him that is not how you spell his name. Interesting. Anyway, apparently the judge went ahead and passed our case, but our case will not be released until the birthfather's ID card is corrected again and brought before the judge on February 16th. (The birthfather does not have to appear again in court.) So...from what we understand our case has basically been approved, it just is not being released until the ID card is corrected. We hope that this is the case.

We want to thank all of our friends and family for the words of encouragement and (most importantly) your prayers over the last couple of days. We have felt your support, and we appreciate it so much.

I'm so glad to hear some good news - at least you have specific information about what took place and how things should go on the 16th. Still praying with you!
