We have received some GREAT NEWS! Our adoption case has been submitted to the Ethiopian courts and we have received a court date for June 24th. We do not personally attend court but an Ethiopian representative will go in our place. Also attending court will be the orphanage director and the birth mothers of our two boys. Although we are very excited about actually having a court date we are very aware that many things could happen to delay court. For example, there could be no electricity that day, the birth mothers may not show up, tribal conflict could block the road, or the paperwork may not be accurate. Please continue to pray for God's timing in this process. Pray for the safety of the orphanage staff and birth mothers as they travel the 14 hours to Addis.
