We got a note from Dove International (our adoption agency) today giving us a little update. This is what they said that if adoptive families are already paired with a child they do not have to go to the court hearing and make a second trip. That is not us though. So we have to make the second trip. There was a question as to whether we both had to go. It looks like we both have to go now. I know that it is great because we meet our kids WAY before we would have "the old way." The bummer is that we will have to leave them for a few months. I know that Ethiopia wants to do everything to protect the kids, so the extra $5,000-$6,000 is just part of what we need to do. It is also cool that Jeanne-Ann and I have to completely trust God along this journey.
