Our court date is Wednesday, July 9 at 10:00 AM. We will be leaving here on Saturday, July 5 and returning on Thursday, July 10 -- without Katie. We will have to return at the end of July or first of August to bring her home. We have to arrange for airfare, lodging, and send off for our visas so we have much to do. We are now in the "hurry up" stage of the "hurry up and wait" process. Off we go!!!

Wow!! It has been a real long time since we've seen one another but let me tell you, after reading your blog I feel as if we have kept in touch all these years!! I am so VERY excited and happy for you and Steve!! I cannot imagine what y'all must be feeling right now!! Get with me sometime soon and let me know how big Katie is as I have lots of pretty girly things that Hailee has outgrown and I would love to share (: Not much longer now!! I will keep you and your family in my prayers Karen!!! Love, ginni ( case you forgot haha)(

Yaaaay!!! If you need me to take Alex so you can get things done, you make sure and call me! We have no plans so far for next weekend even though it is the 4th. I'm so excited for you, you'll be at your court date legally adopting Katie and we'll be (hopefully!) finding out if this little one is a boy or a girl!

I am so excited for you guys! I am sure the boys are getting anxious too! How great it will be to get there to see and hug Katie again! I can't wait to meet her! It will be a wonderful summer, full of the greatest and most precious memories for you all! You and your family will continue to be in our prayers! Love and hugs - The Dickson Family!!

Congratulations! I'm so glad you have a date! You will be so busy in the next week or so packing and planning. The "hurry up" part is so hectic but I like it a lot better than the "wait" part! You're almost there!!
