In regards to court: there are a few things that could affect passing court on Thursday.
- Gman's birth mother is required at court. Its about an 8 hour drive from where she lives to Addis. My placement agency takes care of helping her get there, but there is still always the possiblity she won't be there.
- MOWA (Ministry of Women's Affairs) in Ethiopia is over adoptions. They have to have a letter filed with the courts giving permission for the adoption to proceed. Adoptions in Ethiopia have mutliplied in the last several years, but the personelle for MOWA has not. So its not unusual not to have the letter there.
- Electricity is iffy in Ethiopia.
- Their being enough time in the day. There are a lot of court cases scheduled for that day so they might just run out of time.
