We passed court!

We passed court yesterday! It seemed for awhile that we wouldn't hear anything until today, so we thought maybe something had gone wrong or that our case hadn't been heard. But around 1:30pm I received a call from our caseworker saying that we passed! Shortly after she also told me that we would be traveling the week of February 15th. So that part, I have to admit, was a bit disappointing. We thought we might travel about two weeks sooner. I keep reminding myself that Banke has been where she is for over five months and that she is being lovingly cared for.

So here she is: Banke (Bahn-Kay) Esther Bekele Hale! We can finally post pics of her sweet face!

Please pray for us as we prepare for the trip. And especially that God would prepare Banke and Vaughn for all of the changes they will be experiencing soon.
