Adoption Update

The next major step in our adoption is for our case to go to court in Ethiopia. Once this happens, Anna will legally be our child (according to Ethiopia). We would then travel to Ethiopia when we get a U.S. Embassy appointment which is usually 4-6 weeks after a successful court date.

We were informed in December that we were likely to have a court date in early January. Well, early January came and we did not hear of a court date. But then on Friday we received an email that told us that our court date had been on that very day, but it was unsuccessful because not all pertinent parties were present.

The next attempt at court will come on January 23rd. Hopefully everything will be in order on that day so that Anna can come to our home quickly.
