Our first update!

It is so hard not to type our daughter's name when I am referring to her in our blog! I think from now on I will type Y when I want to type her name. The day we received our referral we knew we wanted to keep her Ethiopian name. It is the name her parents gave her and we want to honor that.
So anyway-The update. It was small, just a few lines but it is just what we needed to hear. She is in school at the orphanage, she loves playing with the other children and is friendly. We also received a new photo! Y is smiling in the the picture. She looks happy! When Isabelle saw the picture she concluded that they must have told her that the picture was being sent to her family!
The courts reopen soon-in 6 days!(there is a buzz that they might have already reopened!) So we are praying that everything is running smoothly and we receive a court date soon!

You blog is so cute. Love the colors :)

My friend is with Hope and they had CD's for Oct 1. Those families didn't pass thought because it was a national holiday and MOWA never got the letters over to the court. They were rescheduled in 3 weeks. All that to say that the courts are open. Hopefully AWAA is submitting all of us closure referral families for court dates!!
