Our dossier was excepted last week on Monday the 12th, then sent for authentication in Washington DC and back to Georgia. It arrived back at our agency in time for the director to personally hand delivery it to Ethiopia. He had a trip planned for the 16th and was able to carry our dossier with him along with the care packages that we had sent for the girls. How cool is that? Coincidence, I think not. We got pictures this Monday of our girls opening our care packages. It is amazing to see them holding the bag of things that we sent them. Our little one looks scared in a lot of the pictures that we've seen of her. I'm glad she has her sister there, but I can't wait to get them home.
Court is reopened now (it closes every fall for the rainy season). Court dates have been assigned to many of the families in our agency this week. Our dossier will be translated and then submitted to the courts for a court date. We're hoping to have a date before the end of the year.
Please keep praying for the safety, health and well being of our girls while they wait.
