No court before court closure.

Well today we received this e-mailfrom our agency..

I just got off the phone with Duni and wanted to notify you right away that you will not be able to make it through court until after the closures. I’m sorry for this disappointing news, and I also apologize if I got your hopes up. Because the courts are over flowing with cases right now, there is no possible way that they will be able to take your cases as well. You’re court dates will not be until October. I pray that the excitement of knowing your child will carry you through this waiting period. Be blessed.

We will be waiting until October for a court date. We will have to wait to to meet our son. For those of you that do not know, the Ethiopian courts close from somewhere around August 7th until October 7th. Daniel will be staying in the transiton home until after the courts open back up. We ask that you continue to pray for him and us. We hope to bring our son home before Thanksgiving.

I did find out today that he is crawling everywhere and will be walking soon. He is still drinking a bottle and eating cereal. We keep hearing that he is the cutest thing ever. We can't wait to post pictures and meet this little guy. We can't post pictures until after court. We will keep you updated.

I can't wait to see pictures! He sounds like an active little one. The description reminds me a lot of Josiah when we were waiting for him to come home. We'll be praying for your court date.

With Love,
