We just received word from America World that we have a court date scheduled for October 29th!!!
We have to be in-country by the evening of October 26th, and we finally get to meet Karis on Wednesday, October 27th!!! I am so excited I could burst!!!
PLEASE start praying now with us that we pass court the first time around (there is a 50% pass rate, with no reflection on the families whatsoever...it's all a matter if every document and letter that is required actually finds its way into our file).
Also, please be praying that we are HOME BY CHRISTMAS!!! (Thanksgiving is still remotely within the realm of possibility, though not highly likely). There is typically a 4-6 week wait between a court date and an embassy appointment . If we don't pass court the first time, or if the US Embassy is backed up for any reason, it could delay our appointment schedule. SO, please pray for the Spirit of God to move on our behalf!
