First of all, I want to thank all of you that comment on our blog. I read and appreciate each one. You lift my spirits and help me in a challenging and lonely time.
Next...we got word that everything is ready for us to have court Wednesday! We've already emailed the embassy to get an appointment Thursday and once we receive our confirmation from them, we will change our plane tickets to Friday! If we're able to keep the same flight, we'll leave at 6:50am (I'm sorry, but I didn't know there was such an ungodly hour!) and arrive in Detroit at 1:30pm. Then we hitch a ride home, get a good night's rest and head to Buffalo to get Eli. I can't wait to see him! He told my sister in law yesterday that he misses us and wants to give us lots of hugs and kisses when he sees us :)
Of course, that means leaving Amelia behind, but we're going to take a translator with us after court (or before depending on what time it is) to explain what's going to happen. And we also have to figure out if this region counts 10 business days or 10 calendar days for it's waiting period.
We see the light at the end of the tunnel and we couldn't be more excited!
