GOOD NEWS ARRIVES, AND PF CHANG'S KNEW IT BEFORE WE DID!
The good news I was hoping to report yesterday had to wait one more day, but it was worth it...
Baby Sister's paperwork has been completed and submitted to court!
What does this mean? It means that all of the necessary paperwork that needed to be completed in order to take the next step towards finalizing this adoption has been completed. Upon completion, it was submitted to the court in Ethiopia and we should soon be given a court date. The court date is the day that the judge reviews the paperwork, interviews all necessary individuals, and ultimately grants our adoption.
This is the news we have been waiting on for six months. We couldn't be more excited about this transpiring.
As many of you know, we weren't sure this day was going to happen, but now it has. THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of your encouragement and prayers during this difficult stretch. Sara and I are so fortunate to be surrounded by such wonderful people.
You may be wondering what PF Chang's has to do with any of this...
Allow me to explain. While Sara was enjoying a nice lunch last week with a couple of her coworkers she cracked open her fortune cookie to find this:
Not long after finishing her always delicious meal we got word from our adoption agency that the paperwork had been indeed completed and our relationship with the baby girl we love in Ethiopia was one step closer to becoming permanent. How did Chang know that?
It's just another reason we like that restaurant so much (along with the lettuce wraps, Chang's Spicy Chicken, Chicken Fried Rice, and the Great Wall of Chocolate).
