We are thrilled to share we received more news about our son on Friday! We were given an update on his measurements & a new photo, and, we found out we've also been assigned our court date: 2/2/2009!
It was such a blessing to receiving specific details about the finalization of our adoption! Having an actual court date has made this process 'feel' even more like reality! I'm a type-A/details personality, so I'm always in need of "the facts" (I drive my poor husband crazy).
Although our court date is 2/2/09, below describes possible scenarios:
--Roughly 30% of families do not pass court on their first issued court date.
--If a family does not pass court initially, court dates are then issued approximately 1-2 months after the original court date.
--Once your family has successfully passed court, you can expect to travel to Ethiopia roughly 2.5 to 4 weeks later.
for our son's health and a successful court appointment! Little Martin is doing well, but the quicker we get him home, the better (for many reasons).
