Moving to the next step!

Rejoice, Rejoice!!  On Wednesday our paperwork for Merone's adoption was submitted to the U.S. Embassy in Ethiopia.  Some of you are wondering what that means.
Our adoption agency must collect post court paperwork such as- new birth certificates, a passport for Merone, a medical evaluation is done, and so on.  All the documents the US Embassy requires for review has been submitted!  The Embassy has about a week to review the documents,  After their review they could:
  1. issue us an Embassy appointment in Addis or 
  2. request more information or
  3. do an investigation
 We are praying for option 1 because the next steps would be getting on a plane, picking up Merone, meeting with Embassy officials and then flying home!!
We should hear something this week!
