No Grandma... No letter... No Nothin'

I received an email update from Children's House International this morning. The local Ethiopian government is still trying to locate S.'s grandmother. Assuming she can not be located, CHI's social worker is "hopeful" that the Ethiopian government will write a letter for the US Embassy next week. CHI is also "hopeful" that the US Embassy will grant approval after the letter is received. So the wait continues.

I would certainly appreciate your prayers regarding this matter. Little man's case is at the mercy of the Ethiopian government AND the US Embassy.

Here's our timeline since our court appearance:

Court date:  December 1, 2011

Adoption final in Ethiopia:  January 13, 2012

Submitted to US Embassy:  February 28, 2012
