court date, court date, COURT DATE!!!


So today was day two of surprising and awesome emails from our director.  She is really just making my week!!

This morning we received an email with the subject: Your Court Date

I almost fell out of the bed!! 

We weren't supposed to hear of our court date until's AUGUST!!! That God of ours is full of surprises!

And our court date is...........

Which means we will be blowing this joint the last weekend of October!!

I am so thankful to have a court date and to know when we will be seeing our son.  And hopefully we will pass court on the first time. Since we were submitted in June our MOWA letter (one of the documents that is needed to pass court that is often times not there in time) should be there waiting on us.  At least we are praying that is the case!

My kids like to make the beginning of November a time to be anticipated...Ava was due on November 2nd, Nora on November 3rd and Now baby T on November 4th!! Kind of cool :)

We keep on praying that everything goes well for our case, that we pass court the first time, that we travel for embassy really soon after, and that Baby T is happy, healthy and loved...oh...and for me...I have a fear of flying that I do believe will be amplified over a big fat ocean.

Well I'm going to get off of here now and go look for plane tickets....TO ETHIOPIA!!!!!!!

Psalm 100

 1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Worship the LORD with gladness;
   come before him with joyful songs. 
3 Know that the LORD is God.
   It is he who made us, and we are his
   we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
   and his courts with praise;
   give thanks to him and praise his name. 
5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
   his faithfulness continues through all generations.
