We just got an email that our first court hearing is set for Monday August 6th!!!! I have to say I wish it was sooner, but at the same time I'm kinda surprised we heard something this soon. I called our case worker to get a better understanding of what happens next and this is what I found out: About one to two months after this first court hearing will be the Civil Ruling and then about one month later will be the FINAL RULING!!!! So, if all goes well we should be traveling in October or November, December at the latest. I'm just hoping that he'll be home with us for Christmas!!

This is taking longer than we initially thought it would, but in the big picture this is still going to be MUCH shorter than most other programs out there. Most days I have this positive thinking, but I have to admit I was feeling a bit down/annoyed today by the wait and then low and behold, I opened my email and got the info about the hearing!!

In the meantime we'll continue to look forward to our monthly updates, photo's and video's and we'll continue to send Brady care packages to let him know we're thinking about him!!!

Keep the prayers and positive thoughts coming!!! We'll keep you all posted.

He is so beautiful! And stay encouraged - he'll be with you sooner than you think. These are the times to cherish your family time before your new life begins with Brady. I know what you mean by wanting him here now, but use this time to renew and get "quiet" - both literally and figuratively. I'm being philosophical and spiritual, I know, but I mean it. Enjoy the journey and the process because it will mean so much more when he gets here. He's going to add so much joy in your life. I can't wait to meet him!!
