I found out today that we passed court.  I am a MOM!  He is mine.  I also found out that my immigration approval is in the mail today.  Its been a big day!

The next steps...

The immigration approval has to get to Ethiopia to the US Embassy before I can be assigned a Visa date for Gman.
I have to have a visa date before I can book my plane ticket. 
Each agency has certain days that they get visa appointments.  They have 10 appointments each day.  So I have to wait to for immigration approval before I can take one of the 10 appointments.  There have also been mutliple court passings from my agency in the last few weeks (YIPPEEE!!!! for all of us), but that does mean that I will have to wait (as patiently as possible) for my turn.  I'm thinking end of July, early August, but no guarantees for that one. 

So that is the latest.
