Happenings ...

Many families began receiving their tentative travel dates today. It is amazing to see the large number of families that will be arriving, wave after wave, to bring their children home. Of course each family will have to pass court, but now that the paperwork change is known, the files are being reviewed so that they can pass court the first time. Travel groups will be departing on the following dates; Oct 25, Nov 1, Nov 22 and Nov 29. There will be travel groups in December as well. Right now, if our appeal for an earlier court date is not successful, we will be travelling the week of Thanksgiving.

The day after we found out that we did not pass court, I had a conversation with Duni and found out that our youngest son actually DID pass court - but our older son did not pass court because of the paperwork change. So our 2 year old, Tariku, is officially our son and his adoption decree has been finalized. And although this is wonderful news, it is bittersweet because I don't feel like I can fully celebrate (or post pictures yet), until BOTH of our boys pass through court, and legally and officially become ... our sons!

Karen, do you think you will travel Oct 25 like the VanWettens and try to get your second boy through court? Or will you wait? Praying for you...
