The Journey of a Lifetime

Ryan and I have decided to pursue our forth adoption and add another beautiful baby to our family. We couldn't be happier and are thrilled! Join us in our journey in adopting baby Schlenner!

Just when I thought things couldn't get any better....

Today, I received the best news from our social worker!!!! She told us that for no particular reason our court date has been moved up to Monday, April 6th!!!!!!! It's moved up a whole 5 weeks!!!!!!! Which means we have court earlier and travel earlier than expected!!!

When a court hearing is typically set-it does not change. Actually, this rarely EVER happens. It's almost unheard of in the adoption world!!! Although, deep down every adoptive parent hopes that this happens so they can be with their child sooner. In my case, personally I have been hoping and praying that this would I CAN travel sooner and get our baby in Africa!

It's impossible to put into words and express the feelings that this stirs up. However, I'm sure all mother's - birth or adoptive - would agree that an earlier arrival date (by 2 months) is ALWAYS music to their ears!!!!!!

We won't know WHEN we travel until after court on April 6th. But, we're hoping that it's the end of April!!!!! That would be three weeks after court...but we could always go sooner, too!!!! I like to look at things on the bright side, of course! So just think...KIRSTIE AND I COULD BE LEAVING TO ETHIOPIA IN 7 WEEKS! I'm going to try and catch my breath and soak in this wonderful news!
