The Next Step
We are hoping and praying that we can travel for court before the end of July because the rainy season in Ethiopia usually begins in early August. The courts close for approximately 8 weeks during the rainy season, and we are hoping that we can avoid that delay! Our social worker told me today that the earliest we could possibly travel for court is June. Our anniversary is in June, so maybe we will be spending our tenth anniversary in Ethiopia!
When can we expect to have her home? That is hard to say. We are just hoping to have her home by Thanksgiving, but it could be sooner than that. If we don't get to travel for court before the rainy season, it would be October before traveled, and then we'd have to wait another four to eight weeks for her visa before we could bring her home. If we do get to travel for court in June, we could have her home by the end of the summer!
