One Step Closer
The news we were anticipating came out this morning, and we are happy to say that Marta and Meklit will be ours next Monday! That is the date for their case to be heard in court, and the outcome is that they will be ours.
The next step is for documents to go through the system and their embassy appointment will be ~4 weeks later, at which point I can travel and bring Marta home. This should mean that I will be over in Addis in mid-November, and Marta and I should be home before Thanksgiving. Lots to be thankful for this year.
I will be able to spend time with Meklit on that trip, but she has to wait a couple more months before we can bring her home. Having her home for Christmas seems like too much to hope for, but you never know!
Time to start packing!
