It's like Christmas and some disappointing news

Greetings -
What a fabulous Monday! Opened my email to see new pictures of my sweet baby boy!! Many thanks to Karen for getting us such wonderful pictures. It is a fabulous present to receive on this bleak and cold day in Nashville! Now as for the disappointing news we received word from our agency on Friday that the embassy is changing procedures and it may make the wait between court approval and travel longer. Our agency is meeting with the embassy today to get a better understanding of what this means so until than we pray. I cannot wait to be able to share T***** sweet face with all of you. We pray for great movement this week with court dates and referrals.

Happy Monday

Greetings -
I hope you had a fabulous Valentine's Day! Kenneth and I were able to spend some great time together on Saturday just being a couple! It is snowing again today in Nashville and the dogs are actually getting used to it and staying in it longer and longer! Here is a great picture from the first snow this year that the fabulous Joe Hendricks of Joe Hendricks Photography took for us!!
Stay warm and have a fabulous Monday!!!

Waiting -

Greetings -
So today I sit at the computer and wait! I keep hitting refresh and praying that a email will pop up with our court date! We sent a package to a wonderful family in Kentucky who is traveling tomorrow to pick up their little girl. While they are in Ethiopia they are going to stop and visit T***** (for the second time!!) I cannot wait for them to get home so I can hear first hand how he is! Well time to go back and check the email!!

Emotions - Run Wild

Greetings -
So who knew that emotions would run so very crazy last week. We tracked our final paperwork to Ethiopia and saw it arrive via fedex on Thurs. We celebrated as now we are soooo close to a court date for our sweet T***** We also saw another week pass with friends receiving court dates and none for us. We celebrated with the Mihnovich's at their adoption shower as they prepare to bring 4 home later this month. And last but not least we relished in the new photos we received as well as his footprint. It was an amazing week to say the least!
