Another Step Towards Bringing Our Boy Home!

I am optimistic that things are getting back on track. Our dossier was back from D.C. in less than a week and forwarded to Ethiopia! It is being closely tracked by several people to make sure it arrives. In the meantime, we hope the translation will be done shortly and maybe we can be submitted for a court date soon? I know it's a rush to get approved before the August 4th court closure date in Ethiopia, but I don't see why it wouldn't happen? Today, we received our USCIS approval letter. That's the final piece of paperwork, on our end, to be completed. (For my friends and family reading this, that is the immigration letter that allows us to obtain a visa to bring our boy home!)

The next thing is receiving a court date and passing. Then, we would travel to pick him up! I am praying all things keep moving along, and he is settling in nicely at HH. I am doing lots of reading and preparing myself for having a young child in the home again. I think we are all a little nervous and excited. I hope he will be happy here.


  1. I'll be praying you get your court date soon. We had our dossier sent to Ethiopia in March and it took about 3 1/2 weeks to hear we had a court date in May. That's 3 1/2 weeks from the time we heard it was in AGCI office on it's way to Ethiopia. Isn't it a relief to get the approval letter! Hope things move quickly for you!

  2. You are right back on track, PTL! Our dossier went to ET mid-March, we received our court date in mid-April. (Court date May 21.) I think you could still have court before the closing :)
