New pics of baby girl

We had the good fortune of receiving a few new pictures of our Jaiden from a couple traveling families int he past week. She is just so precious, I can't wait to just give so many hugs and kisses to her! There is a picture of her sitting up and one of her on her hands and knees, looking like she is ready to take off. I sure wish I could share them with everyone, but it's not allowed until we pass court. She has quite a bit of hair so I might have to step up on the hairbow making. I only have a few done so far. I am trying to match up some of the outfits that we have for her. Charla got her passport and now we just have to work on getting her shots up to date. I think she may need Hep A shots, but not sure. I have been busy working on her room also. I have her curtains done and I am now going to start ont he stenciling on her wall. I have been trying to also spend as much time with Jerry before he goes also.

Well, the window has now closed for us to receive a court date, until after the courts open back up after for rainy season. So that means Oct. I am hoping and praying that we get a court date then. Our baby girl is growing up and we only get to see glimpses of her in the pictures we receive from other traveling families. I just want to hold her and tell her how much we all love her here. I know she is safe and taken care of and that at least gives me some peace. And the pictures that we receive of her are like treasures that I take out every day and just wish she was here with me. Sorry for the ramble, I am just feeling sorry for myself today.

Still no news

Well the window for us to receive a court date before court closure is slowly closing for us. It looks like we will have to wait until the courts reopen in October to receive our court date. This make me sad because our little girl is growing up without her mommy and daddy and also because Jerry will not be able to see her before he goes overseas. I was really hoping and praying that we would have one by now. Even Levi asks where his baby sister is, breaks my heart. It does help to know that she is well taken care of and healthy along with all the other kids at hope. But I would still rather have her here with us so I could love on her. For now I will have to wait for her to come home. Please pray that she will be home soon.

Update on baby girl

We just received this update on our baby girl from a fellow AP that is in Ethiopia visiting her kiddos right now. She says of Desta:

These little bits of news and pictures that we receive of our precious little girl are what keeps me going in this wait for a court date. I can't believe that 2 months have gone by and we haven't received one. If we don't get one soon, I think I will go crazy!! Not sure what the heck is going on there, but I guess all we can do is wait for that magical call or e-mail letting us know we have a court date. Please oh please let us get one soon!!
