We are very excited to report that our Dossier went to Ethiopia last week. It will now go through translation and authentication in Ethiopia. Next step is to request a court date. It sounds like it is taking about 6 weeks to get a court date. About a week after our court date we should be getting our travel dates.
Today we received a video from our adoption agency. A video that had the most beautiful face on it, our son. Yes, last month when CCI's director went to Ethiopia she took video of each child. Gabriel was sad and seemed to be quite attached to his caretaker. He did not like to be touched by the visitors. The orphanage director said that he cries frequently and recently had a fever. I can't wait to hold him and comfort him. I have a feeling his transition is going to be much more difficult than Faith.
In other news everything is well in the Maas household. It has been nice this week so we have been able to spend a lot of time outdoors, in fact, I already have a sunburn. I don't think there is anything else to report. Hope to have more news soon!
