I have posted a few pics that I feel portray my feelings these days. Obviously, we did not make it through court today...again. Obviously, I have starting poking my eyeballs out. We have been re-scheduled for the 29th...Malak's birth mother signed off her parental rights today and that is part of what we have been waiting on, so it looks like we are a shoo in for our next court date. (or so they tell me) All we need now is for the judge to sign off and we are on our way to Ethiopia! I have an idea of we can make this last bit of waiting go by a little faster...I shall post about it soon. :)

It HAS to happen next time! I won't be able to stand it if you don't make it through again!! Ahhhh!

Amy said...

I am picturing you taking these pictures of yourself and that makes me laugh.

I am not laughing at the fact that court has been rescheduled again for you guys. Sucks. It will be next court date... It has got to be.

Can't wait to hear your secret plan to make the time go by faster!

PS While typing this comment I burned Silas' dinner-a cheese quesadilla

Love you!

That is a major drag, but please don't poke those pretty eyes out!! The 29th it is my friend.

Christie said...

Sucky sucky. But at least that paperwork is done now and you shall get through next time (you HAVE to).

Secret plan? Is it a ploy to look cool and mysterious? Because it worked.

So, I wish you weren't working tomorrow. It looks like I will be alone at the movies, again.

~Laura~ said...

Totally blows that you didn't make it thru court again.

D*** it!!!!

Can't wait to hear about this fab plan of yours.

Jocelyn said...

Ok, weird, I posted a comment earlier and it is gone. So, I'll try again. I think I said something like that this sucks and I am so sad for you. Just know that we are all here with you waiting and hoping for Malak to come home very very soon.

You do make me laugh - even when you're mad. I'm hating that you've had to go through this but hopefully this next time will be it and then you'll be on your way!!

Secret plan? Sounds interesting. (And, the trip to MO might help too? :)

Hanging in there with you! This wait continues to stink. Each day feels like a week, at least. I will continue to pray for you. Blessings, Rebecca Kepley

Gina said...

I'm sorry your wait is this stinkin' long, but I'm really super glad that it sounds like all of the roadblocks have been taken care of. It should be smooth sailing now!

I'll keep praying, along with our Ladies' Bible Class and small group.

The Zimmers said...

First-love the shirt! Next-the 29th will be your lucky day! I can feel it! Again, nothing but prayers and happy thoughts headed your way. All the waiting crap will soon be over! True bliss is just around the corner.

Lindsey & Cortney said...

BOOO! I love that you still have a sense of humor even if you weren't trying to. Malak is going to be one blessed boy to have such an amazing mamma!

Kristy -Mom to 4 and soon to be more! said...

If you poke your eyeballs out then you can't see weet Malak when you finally get to him! Now what sense would that make! Go ahead, poke somebody's else's eyes out! :-)
Hang in there...it's almost over!!!!!
Blessings,
Kristy

So, what's you plan? Didn't you say you had a plan? Three days baby. Three days. Then we'll all celebrate and hopefully Belay will say you can hop on a plane SOON!

Farmboy and Buttercup said...

So bummed about your delayed court again. But from what it sounds like from Belay, NOW the court finally has everything it needs, so hopefully your next date will be SUCCESS!

Anyways, we got some sweet pics of your little man. If you email me your address, I will email you them. Our email is on our blog. Also, I thought it was so cute, one caregiver called your sweetie their chocolate baby because she thinks he is the color of chocolate.
