The Ethiopian Court system closes each year around this time. From my understanding the exact date it closes, how long they are closed for, and how they operate during the closure varies from year to year.
In our update this month, we were told:
We shared recently that the courts in Ethiopia have officially closed for their recess period, though the date of their reopening is unknown at this time. We have heard that the courts will not issue court dates during this closure period; however, we have been surprised to see that it has happened anyway. We are not expecting to receive any more court dates for adoptive families during the closure but of course, we always welcome such surprises!
During the closure, referrals are still made, so that's good news for us! Continued prayers in this area would be much appreciated!!
In the meantime, here's what we've been up to during the last month:
Ella's First Day of First Grade!!! (Our BIG Kid!)
Avery's 5th Birthday Party!
The ride home...
Avery's birthday present!
Avery's First Day of Preschool!!
The Rib Cookoff!
Trip to San Francisco!
It's been a busy month! Lots of fun!!
Until next month...
Prayers and blessings!
