We received the adoption decree

We received the adoption decree for Amelia this morning. We have known for a couple of weeks that she is officially our girl. But now we have it in writing!

It is an Ethiopian court document, translated into English. It's a bit sad... Amelia is referred to throughout as, "Ayitu Found Abandoned."

We found some humor, though, too. Throughout the decree, Dave is called DAVID BRAIN HOWLETT. Get it? Ha ha ha!

Anyway, we should know our travel date "any day now," per our agency. The waiting is so hard....we would love to know today when we can pack our bags!
