KEEP ON LIVIN'

Been away from internet for a few days...but just wanted to pass on that Gladney did go to court for us on Friday. Birthmom has officially relinquished, and a new court date of August 11 was issued. We are now racing against the clock to get the additional document. We have obtained a document from this same government agency in Ethiopia in recent months - it took several weeks. Thus, we are guarded in our hopes to have the document within the next few short days. It needs to be in our file for MOWA to be able to review prior to our August 11 court date.

And so, in the words of my dear husband, we will live hopeful and joyful because we are faithful that this fight will be won at some point, in spite of this journey taking a different path than we had imagined. Someday this part of the journey will all be over...

...someday when it's time.

Oh, your husband has such faith. Is he a "glass is half full" kind of guy? those are the best!

Oh, I would be stinkin' mad, too. I HAVE been stinkin' mad several times during this journey. These trials, the waiting, just keeps making us stronger.

Go Rocky!
