Ok, so I FINALLY got ahold of our family coordinator from our adoption agency. Here's the scoop:
Our daughter passed the 8-week wait period on May 12. They are currently finishing up the paperwork needed for her to go to court. They are waiting for one more document to be signed. Once that happens, our daughter can go to court in Ethiopia! We should hear about a court date sometime in the next week or two.
I also asked our agency about the possibility of our daughter not getting to court before the closures at the end of July. She seemed very optimistic about getting to court before that time. It was a HUGE relief to me. However, there are always variables beyond our control when it comes to international adoption. Please continue to cover this issue in prayer.
Finally, we got another picture of our daughter this morning from Ethiopia. They shaved her head! She looks so different without hair. She is still as beautiful as ever, but now she has a shiny bald head. It's adorable!
Craig's dad and sister came out to visit last weekend. We had a great time. I am including a picture of myself and Craig's sister Ashley taken while we were hiking in Sedona. ENJOY!
