Our court date was on Tuesday, October 12th. We woke up that morning very nervous since we were one of the first families that had to appear in front of the judge. Luckily there were a couple of families that had gone before us so we knew a little on what to expect.
We were suppose to meet at the Gladney office in Addis before heading over to court. However, we got a little stuck in traffic and by the time we arrived at the office, all the other families were getting in their cars to head over to court. We had missed the meeting! Some of the other families filled us in on the information they received and some of the questions they were expected to ask us. There was still apart of me that felt like we had missed something important and was panicking a little inside.:)
