Starting to believe this is happening

We have been showered with love! So many kind words and excitement from our family and friends about our, not great... FANTASTIC news this week! I'm so so very excited and feel so lucky to have such amazing people in our lives.

So, we don't know much info about him. There are families traveling soon, so we'll get some photos of him. We can't show any photos of him until we pass court though. I am so grateful to the other families traveling that take the time to see the children waiting. It's amazing to have such support of someone knowing exactly what you are going through.

Our next step is waiting to get a court date...this could take a little bit. A court date will be set in the Ethiopian courts to determine us as his legal parents. We were told it could take up to 2 months to get a court date. So, more waiting. But, it's okay. Everything is ok, for now. We are just letting this sink in. Finally, a little face to put to all this waiting!

Once we pass through court, we'll be assigned an Embassy date. This is the date where we have to be in Ethiopia. I just hope this all moves smoothly from here...
