Another M* Update!!!



I was so excited to receive an email from my case worker today. I have been really nervous with our court date coming up on Thursday. It is so strange to think that this Wed. night while we are all sleeping our case will be heard in a court half way around the world in Ethiopia. And, if we pass my sweet boy will share our last name.

Just a heads up it is common in Ethiopia for court to be postponed or re-scheduled due to power outages, missing paperwork, etc... We are hoping and praying that we pass the first time and we would appreciate any prayers, good vibes, positive thoughts etc... that you could send our way. We are SO READY to bring our little guy home. Even though we have never met him we all miss him dearly.

The update had a medical exam in it and my M* is doing very well. His health is still only adequate but he looks great. The update also had a new picture and for the first time my boy is not in pink... not that there is anything wrong with boys in pink in fact he looks pretty darn good in it. But, I am sure a little boy probably prefers blue over pink... at least I think?? It is so funny to only know your child through photos. I sit and analyze each photo for hours. Trying to imagine how he feels, what his personality is like. I think it is going to be so weird to finally be face to face with him. Hopefully, that day is soon... very very soon!!!

I remember seeing my Will in pink a lot too. Even pink pin striped overalls. Now he won't wear overalls. He says, "Mom I wore those in Africa... I don't wear them here" referring to bib overalls. Too cute. And when I saw him for the first time sleeping he had pink pajamas bottoms on. He always comments on those when he sees that pic too. Good luck with your court date. I am soooooo in love with my Will. I cuddle up with him every night and thank God for the gift he blessed us with.
