Court Date - March 28th

I woke up this morning to go to work and signed into our slow dialup computer to check email like I do every morning. We had an email from Sue that had "court" as the subject. I was so excited!
Took forever and the computer messing up a few times, but finally got the email to open and there was our court date.
November 19, 2010 Officially on boys/girls waiting list
December 21, 2010 Received our two referrals
February 3, 2011 Case submitted to court
February 19, 2011 Received court date.

Things are moving! Even though Sue said we wouldn't know when we had court until March and even though she said it would be at least 6 weeks before traveling after we found out, and that we wouldn't go to court until April, I have prayed and prayed that God speed it up!
We will probably try to leave on the Friday the 25th and get there sometime Saturday the 26th. I am so confused by time zones and how they relate to air travel, we just need to get there by Saturday night, so we can spend the day with them Sunday before court. We want to stay a week and Sue suggests that we get there right before court and stay after, instead of coming a week before court, so that is what we will do.
Maybe coming back the Friday or Saturday after court. Don't know yet. It will be so hard to leave them, but I still am trying to focus on what we will get instead of what we are missing.

We will be booking flights soon, very scary for the cost end of it.

Worked 12 hours today. Today was real busy, so the day went by pretty fast, although 12 hours is a long time. Aaron worked today also and is working tomorrow. Tomorrow is Aaron's day 8 of 12 days in a row.
Now it is time to plan.
What should I take, eat, wear? There is some stuff to download from our agency, I guess I will do that first.
Hard to believe that it is really happening after waiting for years. You know we started our homestudy March of 2007? Such a long wait, but worth it I am sure.


  1. So excited for you guys!!! :o) What a long journey...and you're almost there!
