Lots going on

Not a lot going on here. We have caught every bug known to mankind this winter (Ok it could be MUCH worse I know). Not a lot of photo ops when everyone is sick nonstop. It's getting warmer and soccer season is starting (between 3 of our kids, they are on 4 teams and John is coaching two of those). There are sure to be many pictures soon! :)

Our biggest news right now is we need everyone's prayers. We are

9 days until our court date!!!!!

What this means is our case will be seen in an Ethiopian court on March 23. We do not have to be there because our facilitator is going on our behalf. If the judge finds all of our paperwork suitable and in order, he will approve us as the parents of our little "B" we love so much! Even one document not arriving in time could cause us to fail and need to be rescheduled for later (which could be 4 more weeks or 10-12 more weeks!). Please pray that everything our case needs to pass is in order and we pass the first time through court! For all the families familiar with the Guatemalan process, passing court is like getting out of PGN. Failing is like getting a KO. When we pass we will travel 3-6 weeks later to bring "B" home!!!! So of course we would really appreciate everyone's prayers at this time. We would much rather bring little "B" home in April rather than late summer/early fall.

Thanks for stopping in and commenting over at my blog!

I just noticed your court date is quickly approaching and I'll be praying for a first time pass!

We are still waiting to find out if we will still have the March 27th court date as we have decided to adopt a 10 year old boy as well.

Blessings to you and your beautiful family!
