Ferd Bet (Hulet)- Courts(Two)

Well, I finally broke down and called our agency today. I already knew before I called that I'd be told "When we have news, we'll call you," but I thought I'd take a shot. At the very least, I was hoping for some sort of update. What I was told is that while the courts are opened, the judges have not yet returned, therefore, there will be no courtdates! NOT what I wanted to hear! Then, to top it off, I went home and in my mailbox was a picture of one of the most beautiful Ethiopian babies I have ever seen in my life. His name is Daniel, home from Ethiopia with his forever family for just a few weeks. Thank you to Daniel's mom for thinking of me! I'm serious, this is one of the cutest little boys I've ever seen. He's so tiny, just 12 pounds and nearly a year old. And he has the biggest eyes you can imagine. Well, while this is obviously a good thing, seeing this darling little baby with his new family was the last straw for me. The melt down that has threatened for weeks finally came. Now mind you, I think melt downs are good once in a while! All is well again. And I don't care if the judges are back or not; I'm still going to keep my ticker at the top of this blog! I have to have something to mark time and show progress!

Heather, I agree - temporary mental breakdowns are needed sometimes! I'm so sorry for your horribly long wait and the heartache that goes along with it. I know it sounds cheesy, but your family is in my prayers daily!

Me too. Sometimes you just need that little nudge to vent the build up of months and months of waiting. Waiting, hoping and praying right along with you guys.

Rich, Your family too has been in my prayers along with a few others who are in our same boat.

Hi Heather,
We are so sorry for your sadness. It breaks our hearts to see our girl so sad. We pray daily for you and Avery and the kids. And I mean all the kids. We are so anxious to meet our new grandkids. We love you and pray the wait will be over soon.
