...well, you can't really have any calculations in the adoption process. As a matter of fact, you can't really have expectations at all. All you can do is go with the flow and wait for the next step.
As of July 15th, the Ugandan courts have taken their summer break. They will reconvene on August 15.
It's kind of nice to have this month. We aren't in anticipation for anything. We know we've done our part. We are just coasting (and trying to get creative on how to raise the rest of our funds).
As many of you know we found out, last Monday, that our case had been submitted to court. And, surprisingly we have already been assigned to a judge! We are thrilled to hear this news.
The only step left is to hear word that we can travel. That's the only thing that stands in our way, from being on our way:)
If my calculations are correct we have right around $10,000 left to raise. Adoption is so expensive, but to be honest, half the cost is traveling and living expenses overseas. The money really adds up once you add in all of those costs. So, basically, all we have left to raise is the money for airline tickets for our family. If you put it that way, it doesn't seem so bad.
So, we press on...it is coming quickly! I'd love to have a new little one to take trick-or-treating this year, because that is one thing I know about her, she loves her some "sweeties"!
