We have a court date!!!

Things seem to keep moving faster and faster! We found out yesterday that our court date is set for June 4th. The court date is the day that the Ethiopian government declares our kids to be ours. It is not uncommon to not pass court the first time due to additional requests of documents, etc. If we do not pass then we would be assigned another date and there is no way to tell what that date would be. If we do pass then we would most likely travel in the latter part of July.

Please pray for us right now. Pray that Brent and I will be able to get everything done that is on our plate right now as it is REALLY full. Also, please pray that things will go smoothly and that we would have peace to know that God is in control and knows all things. Everything that happens will be in His timing.


  1. WOW! That is so fast! How long will ya'll be there?

  2. YAY! So happy for you. Looking forward to praying for you as your date approaches.

  3. So excited to learn about your journey from our mutual friend Kristi!
    Love & Blessings from Hong Kong,

  5. Whoa. Has all this happened since we met you at the picnic? You didn't know you were adopting a 5 and 8 yr. old then, did you? So funny that they're so close in age to ours. AND our court date is the day before yours!! We need to get together and chat! Our kiddos need to be friends! :)
