No news is good news...I'm not so sure about that!

There hasn't been much news on the adoption front the past couple of weeks.  We are in the midst of the "waiting period" and it's not so much fun!  We know that our dossier has been in The Congo now since Friday, August 5.  We're assuming that it has been translated by now and we're waiting for our case to be submitted to Court.
We're spending this time learning a bit of Lingala (the language that our little one is familiar with), working on her bedroom and trying to research ways we can bring her culture and customs into our home to ease with her transition.
I guess the saying is, "no news is good news", but I'd sure LOVE to hear that our case has been submitted to court and things are progressing!

In other news...our good friends the DeMaio's are in Ethiopia this week bringing their sweet baby girl home.  If you're interested in following along with their story, go here.  We're so excited for them and can't wait until they get home!  Look at this sweet mommy and daughter - priceless!
