A little court hope

After my last post, I was feeling pretty down - as the roller-coaster still continues, even after referral.

BUT, I found out this week that Ethiopian courts, even though they are closed, are still issuing court dates for when they re-open (which is the first time they have done this). So once our dossier is in Ethiopia (still another couple weeks to be authenticated in Ottawa), they will apply for a court date for us.

So sometime in the beginning of September we hope to know our court date. It will be so nice to be able to start planning and booking flights ahead of time. And even better, it is more likely that our court date will be in October (no guarantee of course), rather then waiting until re-opening and it would have likely been in November.

I am staying grounded on this one. My "cautious but hopeful" feeling is all too familiar. We will hope for best, and prepare for the worst...

Oh, I hope so. When I read that comment on the yahoo forum, my first thought was - YAY - now Laura and Chad can get their court date.

Here's to hoping...and dreaming...and planning.

Yay!! Things are moving, even when we feel they go backwards... Onwards and upwards (to the skies over Africa).

Love to you all.

Waiting is never fun but it is great that the court dates are still being assigned while the courts are closed.

Here's hoping the court date is earlier than you expect!
