Well, It’s been 6 days since we have received our referral of our precious little Grace! What a whirlwind it has been. We’ve been able to see a few more pictures of her, and although she’s an itty, bitty peanut, she’s as cute as can be!!! It’s crazy to think that we could either be traveling in a month to go and get her, or sitting back and waiting for the courts to re-open at the end of September!! Do we hurry up and go crazy trying to get everything ready or do we try to keep our sanity and pace ourselves, plan our summer vacation, etc, etc….. so many unknowns!! All I know is that we are blessed beyond words with a perfect little girl.

For our first real post here we are proud and happy to announce that we have received our referral from Ethiopia today, Wednesday June 20, 2007!! We’d like to introduce baby Grace but we can’t legally show pictures of her yet. Here’s what her hand looks like:
She's 7 weeks old and as cute as can be! She's an itty bitty little peanut, too! Our next steps are to formally accept the referral, wait for a court date to be set in Ethiopia and then travel to bring Grace home with us. Please pray that we will get a court date quickly so we can travel before the courts close in August. If we don’t get a date in August then we won’t be able to travel until after the end of September. This is because the Ethiopian courts are closed in August and September. The timeline is pretty tight, so we’ll see if we make it before then. More to come soon.
