Adoption #2 Update


Our agency rep. just got back from Ethiopia last night and sent us some new pics of the boys today. We had sent photo books and shirts for the boys. She said they were excited that she found them a family. She got to take pics to several boys who have recently been matched with families. She said there were about 8 other boys who came up to her while she was there and asked her to find them a family. Ugh! break my heart. Anyways, she thinks the attorney in ET has the boys paperwork in order now (she's double checking with him today) so that our case can be submitted for a court date. It usually takes a week to be assigned a court date and court dates are being assigned 4-6 weeks from the time they are submitted. So we could be looking at a March court date. If we pass court the first time (remember it took us 4 times with the girls), Matt could be traveling April/May. Of course that time line could be sped up or slowed down because after all, we are dealing with an international adoption here and we all know how timelines go for that. Other good news is we received a $2,000 grant this week. Praise the Lord!

Just read about your upcoming adoption, how wonderful! Not sure how you guys do it, one little one is sometime more than we can handle :-)

Best of luck and we can't wait to meet your new boys, hopefully by the picnic this year!
