1 Year Ago.....

We passed yet another milestone in Malachi's story today! One Year ago this very day, we finally passed court in Ethiopia.

You may remember we suffered through many court appointments last year (fortunately they were all within a 1 month timeframe thanks to the AGCI staff pressing the judge to schedule them closer together!) Anyone who has had to wait through one night wondering what was happening in the courts half a world away understands how excruciating that really is. Much less hearing time and time again that all the paperwork was not in order, or the judge just didn't show up to work, or they didn't have time to look at our case - blah blah blah.

It was a very tough phase to be waiting in, but one year ago today we heard the glorious news that everything was in order and he was all ours!!! It was one of the best days in the journey for sure!

Our precious little Segni, almost 1 year ago:

My how he has changed :)
