While almost every other AWAA family waiting for a court date got one this week... we did not.

Instead we heard that there are missing documents that have prevented us from being submitted to court.  We won't receive a court date until all of these documents are obtained.

The missing papers are not on our side and therefore the problem is completely out of our hands.  All we can do is wait, which you would think we would be good at by now.  

We are not.

We are sad.  We are ready to go get her right now.

But its crummy times like these that make me realize what amazing friends we have.  I've gotten so many emails, phone calls and text messages I can't keep up with them all.  I'm pretty sure I exceeded my monthly texting limit in one day.  I don't know what we'd do without these new friends we've made along the way and the old friends who've stuck it out with us.  Thank you for keeping us sane.  I know it's a pretty big job.

We just found out that we are waiting for her birth mothers name to be added to all of the documents.  Some of those documents have to come from individuals who are a long way from Addis Ababa.  Please pray that those documents come in quickly and the individuals responsible are quick to get the job done.  We won't be submitted to court until those documents are completed and even then we will have to wait days to a week for a court date.  Please pray that this is resolved quickly and that we are able to travel in early April.  

Also, we heard today that she has conjunctivitis.
