Just when I had resigned myself to a long, hard slog of waiting for a court date that could be up to a year away…

Yes, that’s right! I have a court date, everybody! May 30th, to be exact. Booked my flight this morning, and now I’m scrambling to get my stuff in order before I leave for Addis on the 27th!

Not sure whether my MOWA letter will be in place by the time I appear in court, but I’m too excited to dwell on that right now. I’d much rather focus on how amazing it’s going to be to finally meet my daughter! Wish me luck!

ETA: My court date changed from 5/20 to 5/30, so I changed the dates above to reflect my new itinerary. It’s all good!
