The official announcement was made to all families in Group K today! We are beyond belief that we are going to have our day in court soon. (Ed. Note: Group J is in court on July 25th!) By sometime in early August, God willing, the courts in Ethiopia will affirm on paper what we have known in our hearts for so long--that Baby Girl is a bonafide Ark rider. Incidentally, for those who may be wondering, that day in court is when Ethiopia and the US officially recognize us as her parents and we will be able to post her photo here--trust me, you can't wait.
And to sweeten the pot, a local mom is traveling on Monday to bring her new daughter home. She's promised to stop in and snuggle our sweetest little Arkling and let her know that her family(yup, that's us!) is coming soon. And speaking of moms bringing their beautiful, Ethiopian daughters home. If you haven't congratulated them yet, you better hurry over to Becky's before she heads off to the hospital to deliver her newest, new baby!
