The Wait Is On for Court

I was told by my awesome case worker for Wide Horizons that our dossier was confirmed, sent and received in Addis before Christmas and that now we only should expect an update for when we actually get a court date. This is kinda awesome and weird at once. I would like to be informed that we are submitted to court- but i guess that's not part of their process. But she said from the DTE to court has been between 2 and 3 months on average. So lets estimate Dec 20 - DTE so the earliest we will likley have court is late Feb . I hope to have some sort of updates before then about the process (such as the birth family interviews and MOWCYA letters-) but i guess that may not be the case. heres to about 6 weeks of waiting then expecting a big email/call about getting our butts on a plane. In the meantime we must expedite Sams passport- he will be going with us for court!!!


  1. Praying that it's the quickest submission to court they've ever had :) God bless you guys!!!

  2. I'm going to follow your journey to court (and to bring your sweet little one home)! I don't understand why they don't tell you things like when you're submitted to court, etc. - it would be so simple to do. But, they don't! Hang in there on the wait - it is so tough, but so worth it in the end (as you already know).
