Today has been a great day. Our agency called us this morning to let us know that the Ethiopian courts approved our adoption. We are now the proud parents of Hope Mahelet Griffith, and we can finally relax and begin to get ready for her arrival.
Our next step in the process is to go to Ethiopia and pick up our daughter. We will travel once we get an embassy date, which should be between 6 to 8 weeks from today.
In the past, our agency allowed us to share pictures after court approval; however, they now ask that we wait until coming home. I must say that I am disappointed not to be able to show off our adorable little girl, but we need to do what is best for adoption. So, everyone will have to trust me when I say that she is absolutely beautiful.
