Well, it's not as soon as we were hoping but we're going to be traveling to Ethiopia sometime shortly after Independence Day to pick up our girls. Our appointment with the U.S. Consulate is on July 11. We'll probably leave on July 5 or 6 and return on the 14th.
It's nice to finally have a date even though it is still a ways off. One good thing, though - the timing of this will allow me to participate in our youth group's mission trip to Detroit from June 27 through July 3.
By the way, after our court date on May 31 we'll be able to post pictures, names, and other biographical information about our girls. I know some of you have been anxious for that!
