Impetigo-Yeah, we got that

At this point, it is really no surprise to me that of the THREE babies who have impetigo, ours is one of them. Of these three, the information we received from the newly added full-time doctor on staff at the orphanage, says that Baby T's impetigo is "extensive" covering his neck, face and chest. The good news, according to this email, however, is that he as well as the other two babies were treated with antibiotics (topical/local and systemic) and they are all doing fine now. Thank God!
Still no news on the court date front, but a glimmer of hope. Families adopting from Ethiopia, using other agencies, have begun to get their re-issued court dates AND travel dates. Many seem to be traveling before the end of November. So in my book, that sounds like *potential* good news for our prospective travel dates. Originally, we had planned to have the kids home by Thanksgiving (and we would certainly still want that scenario above all others) ,but, we have lowered our expectations. Getting them home, whether November 30th or December 1st is the main goal and we're gearing up for a big win!

I'm sorry to hear about Baby T's impetigo. Both our Ethio boys had some skin issue (mollescum). I feel for you and Pat. You just want them home so you can take care of them. I remember the feeling: "Let's just get them out of there!!"

Thanks so much for the encouragement. Sometimes it is just nice to know that we're not alone in these things! Jane
