T MINUS 20 DAYS AND COUNTING...

...To August 5 - Court Date Time! (JESSICA, WE NEEDED THIS FAB NEWS-THANK YOU!)

Prayers for a successful court hearing so we can get on a plane to bring her home maybe end of August or beginning of September - not sure....?

We got another update today as well!

"She is a ‘Beaut’! She is steadily filling in boxes on her developmental chart and only lacks these; ’roll over’,’ reach for an object’,’ say ah-goo or other vowel-consonant combo’ and ’on stomach, raise chest supported by arms’. She almost got her chest up but I could not give it to her! I told her you would love her just the same! She is a quiet child, for now.” --Joanna and Travis

Weight- 12.35 pounds

According to Joanna, she was diagnosed with Conjunctivitis and experienced some fast breathing. She was treated with some antibiotics. We assume the treatments are going well and look forward to another update soon!

Dreaming of days to come...

Hip Hip HOORAY! Koko, you're almost home! I'm thinking of the empty scrapbooks, ready to fill, the pictures yet to be taken, and the warm hugs around your neck waiting to happen. She is already a blessing and will be not only to the 2 of you -- but all your surrounding loved ones who celebrate this precious gift of life! Go GOD!

August 5 will come faster than you know. We're praying here for a quick and successful court date, and also for your little angel to be SO ready in her heart to receive you as her parents. We'll keep watching the blog for good news!

You're ready...getting set...and before we all know it...you'll GO!! The love, patience, and trust within your blog warms my heart and certainly reaches the dear little KOKO. What a joy it will be to actually hold her and feel the echo of your heartbeats.

August is a special month...your anniversary, on your grandparents anniversary before you...it's only fitting that your daughter should come home to you in this very special month. We pray for a successful court date, and a safe journey to bring her home. We love you...Dad and Billie
