We recieved our update today! We entered the courts in June, had a judge scheduled in July, and our Hearing is set for September 3rd. Alot farther away than we anticipated but atleast the end is in sight. We are told that everything is going smoothly and no worries! :) They explained that our process looks like it will follow another families that is currently traveling. They expect to work with the courts to have everything they need before the hearing so that the hearing is indeed the last step before the finale. They have a tentative travel date of end of September or begining of October. That seems far fetched and I am thinking more in the lines of October or November but will happily be pleasently surprised! I jsut cant see how you can get a hearing in September and travel in September. But you never know. I would love to hear that. They also let us know that the foster family is to have our questions answered and back to us by August in pleanty of time to travel. We will be sendin her another package in a few days. We do not know her sizes still and didnt get photos as we assumed we wouldn't. We are still very happy to know our case is moving along as it should and we have a hearing date!!! Our daughter will be home before xmas for sure. WOW 2 kids this Christmas. How blessed are we? Hope the good news comtinues to come for our fellow families.
