Adoption Court Date

Our kiddoes will be officially ours (pending the actual passing of court... hopefully we will be able to do this with our first appointment!) On May 20, 2009. We will be able to go and pick them up 2-6 weeks later, depending on how long their passports take.

So we will be traveling to Ethiopia, home to the world's oldest human skeleton, the great rift valley, the source of the blue nile, the birthplace of Makeda, Queen of Sheba, and also of two of the most beautiful girls on the face of this planet, sometime this June.

Hooray!!

I'm filling these months up with more reading, hair practice, cooking practice, and other important things. My goals are to learn several important words and phrases in Amharic if I can, and also get some donations from local people/ward members to take to the Aids orphanage.

So basically we'll be running around like the proverbial headless chickens.
We're so excited.

This is so exciting. Did you mention how old your daughters are? And are they sisters? I love the way you mentioned that your little princesses are from the birthplace of the Queen of Sheba
