Group A!!!

We just heard from AAI that we are in Group A, which means our file will be in the first group the court sees when it reopens in October! The Ethiopian courts are closed each year for the Ethiopian New Year from early August to early October, so everyone is anxiously waiting for news of the reopening, and how they unjam the bottleneck of cases that have piled up during those 2 months.

This is such good news as it means that Marta will be home for the holidays, and Meklit 2-4 months later.

Happy day in the Downen house. Maybe we will have to have a little party tonight!
