Time is such a relative concept. Another adoptive family gave us this insight a few days ago from when they traveled to Ethiopia. The idea of being "on time" or "scheduling" something is really not an Ethiopian thing. For example, if you manage to accomplish ONE of the things you set out to do today, you're doing well. So, we shouldn't be overly suprised that our court case (as well as all the other court cases scheduled from all the adoption agencies) were not heard yesterday (for an unknown reason) and that they have yet to RE-schedule them. Someone from our agency believes it will probably be next week for court now, and that it should not impact previous travel estimates. So, we should still be traveling before the end of November. That was a bit of encouragement, and at this point, I'll take what I can get.
