We are eight days away from our court date. When we started this process, that court date was everything...the final phase before travel. Now, it seems like just another milestone, a step in the right direction, yet, not homebase . Now, with the new TB testing, we will wait again. I feel like I won't be truly relieved until that test result is clear.
In the meantime, we are polishing up on our Amharic. (I think we have managed a few phrases). My friend Mona completes her schooling this Friday and says she will have all the time in the world to give us some language lessons. Good thing.
There have been some wonderful families willing to look up our little guy while at HH. They haven't had a whole lot of luck. He seems to be a bit of a mystery. No one has had a chance to really visit with him. I would love to know just one little detail...is he shy? energetic? happy? athletic? big, small, anything...
For now, we continue to ready his room, buy some clothing, pull out old toys and books, get some rest and wait...
For everyone else that just returned from Ethiopia and those going soon...thank you for being willing to help out and congratulations on your new addition!
