Court news

Well the rumors have been flying around that on July 2nd is when the courts will announce when they will start hearing the abandonment cases from Addis. I really hope this is true and we can receive our court date soon. And that all the people that have been waiting alot longer than we have to get thiers also and pass so that they can bring thier kiddos home too. Tomorrow will be a month that we have been waiting for a court date, I think I read that before it was about 2 weeks or so to find out your court date. At this point we are praying that we get one before court closure this year so we can bring her home by Oct. or Nov. providing we pass on the first or second court date. There are a couple of family's traveling in July and I can't wait to see new pictures of our little girl Desta!!! Since Jerry leaves for Iraq in Oct. I would really like for him to be able to meet his daughter before he leaves. He leaves for training July 20th and will only be home for a wekk in Aug and for Thanksgiving, then he will be gone until next Oct. I don't know how I will make it through this next year or so without him here. Please pray for our family.

Newest info on court cases

It is unofficial, but hopefully the Ethiopian courts are going to start to hear cases on abandoned kids as early as next week!!! Maybe we will get a court date soon. I pray that we do, and when I say we I mean all the families especially those that have waited longer than we have to finally get a court date and pass so that we can bring these kiddos home. I am really praying hard that we get one before court closure or maybe they won't close at all, that would be wonderful. Well that's all for now, we just returned home from San Antonio and I am so tired. 3:30am comes around way too early in the morning.

There have been rumors going around that the Ethiopian courts that close every Aug & Sept will not close this year during thier rainy season because of the investigation that was conducted into a few orphanages. It also states that the investigation is now over and they will start to issue court dates for the children abandoned in Addis Ababa and all the other cases that have been postponed. I just hope that both are true. We just might be able to bring our little Desta home sooner than we thought. WOOHOO!!!!! We already are so in love with her and we've only seen her in a couple pictures. I have now started to finish up her room. I need to find a couple stencils to finish it. I think it will be so cute when I get it done. Everyone here is getting so excited. I can't wait to bring her home.

Contract signed and delivered!!!!

We sent in the signed contract yesterday to our agency. Now we just wait for a court date. We are not sure if she was abandoned or relinquished so we aren't sure if we will be one of those cases that will not be heard until the Ethiopian government makes a decision about what to do. I hope they do soon and everyone that has a court date will pass and be able to bring thier children home. I would really like to be able to bring her home before Jerry leaves for the Middle East, so at least he will be able to go with me and be with her even if it's just a short time. Sometimes I wonder and it scares the you know what out of me that something will happen to him over there before he ever gets to see her and then Mylie will never know what a good man her daddy is. I hate to think like that but I can't help it, there are so many what if's. I just need to focus on something, and Mylie's referral came just at the right time. Getting things ready for her will make the time go by quickly (I hope). I will post more info when I get it.
