Day Three.....Court Tomorrow!
I can't believe tomorrow is our last day in Ethiopia. It has been a busy few days. Unfortunately, there are no pictures today......wi-fi is not working, but at least we can give some information. We went to the transition home for the morning. Hattie seemed more comfortable with us today and ate her whole bowl of cereal with Ryan feeding her.... big accomplishment! Apparently we do not do it like the nannies do. She had a fun time with us blowing bubbles and took another nap while I was holding her (love it....I tried to hand her off to Ryan but she did not like us moving her around while she was trying to sleep). I changed her diaper for the first time today (she still wears them some) - she did not seem to mind. We will see her one more time after court tomorrow. Our hearing will be in the morning, which will be about 1 or 2 in the morning at home. Please pray for the judge's favor before you go to bed tonight:) One family with us is still missing an important letter and we are praying hard that it will arrive before court so that they can get their adoption decree tomorrow. We did some shopping this afternoon and have been able to see a lot of the city. We are told there are 7-8 million people living here. It is always exciting when we are traveling around as they do not have traffic lights - Even at an intersection with 3-4 lanes of traffic going in all 4 directions. Everyone just inches their way through the intersections. Horns are used quite often and pedestrians do not have the right of way. Today we saw a herd of oxen walking down the main street and had a herd of donkeys cross through 6 lanes of traffic right in front of us!! Can't wait to show you all some pictures! Hopefully we can post an update after court tomorrow before we fly out tomorrow night!
