WE HAVE A COURT DATE!!!
We couldn't be more excited!! This weekend was awesome. We had such a great great baby shower. It was amazing to have so many family and friends there. I felt very loved. We found out Saturday night when we called the orphanage that we have a already have the court date set!! We prayed specifically for this miracle. The HOGL got our papers on Monday. We were told that we wouldn't hear anything until Feb.6th-Feb 11th because the Chinese New Year just started. During the Chinese New Year everything shuts down...all businesses, postal services, etc. But guess what...the paperwork all passed through so super, duper fast!! We are also very thankful because the government is allowing the orphanage to contact the birth mother through a phone call to tell her when and where the court date will be held. This is also awesome since the postal service is shut down during the New Year she may not have found out about the court date until it was too late. So...on February 9th at 10am our time....is when the court date will be held. We are praying that all the papers will arrive to the court in time and the birth mother will show up. After the court date is over. We will know more information about when we can book our flights!!!
