We have a court date!

Not as early as we had hoped, but we have a court date and time.  This Friday the 10th at 11am.  Our little buddy was so happy, she sang us this song.

There were other good signs today as well.  When we came in they had her sitting on the floor in he middle of the room.  She made signs to Patty to pick her up, and when she did, there were lots of hugs and kisses to go around.  On this, our tenth visit, she seems to be recognizing us some.

The visit was rather short because of the time we spent at the courthouse signing documents and getting things ready for court.  During the playtime that followed we got some more serious shots of her to counterbalance the wacky side demonstrated above.

And then there was this....
With that tonsillectomy to leave you with, we can say this.

The end of Trip 1 is in sight.  Trip 2 will be following on very closely.  With the Lord's blessing, this little angel will be celebrating New Years with a new family in a new country.
