Dear Garth and Carmen,
As you wait for a court date we are writing to update you that we are currently seeing court dates issued for early March. We anticipate future dates to be issued around or after that time and would like to prepare your family for this timeframe for your court date. Your court case is currently open and we are currently in the process of waiting for a date for your family.
That obviously was not the news we wanted to hear, but I know that God is in control and His timing is perfect...even if we can't see it right away. On a positive note, we will have that much more time to get things ready for the boys. Garth's birthday is also in March so maybe we'll be in Ethiopia together for his birthday. That would be a FANTASTIC birthday present, I think!
