~ So happens now.... well our court documents and decree have to be translated from Amharic,
Chernet has a formal medical evaluation, and all of our and his documents are compiled and
submitted to the United States Embassy for review and visa.
~ When will he be home.... the short answer is we do not know. He has a living birth grandparent
that the embassy may want to speak with (completely okay by me).... it is taking anywhere
from four weeks to four months with the average of 3 months-ish.... So, we don't know when he
will be here but we hope it is sooner rather than later
~ In the meantime.... we are trying to arrange for someone to pick up the boys in the fall after school
from two separate elementary schools (interested?) We will work like crazy...organize Tedi's
room to make room in all the toys for a brother. I will be applying for my pediatric intensive care
fellowship in July.... that is what we will do while we wait. Oh yes, and continue to encourage
everyone else to adopt, advocate, fight, DO...
Can you find my boy? A lovely gift from a friend who was in Ethiopia a few days after us.
