Birth Certificate!!

We received word from our agency yesterday (July 3) that we passed yet another milestone in our adoption process. The Ethiopian government issued Yihun's Birth Certificate with Steve and I listed as his parents. The only step remaining before we travel is his medical Visa through the US Embassy.

We don't have a tentative travel date yet but our agency sends families every other week and the next two travel date option are July 29th and August 12th. Another family we have met on our agency's forum, adopting a 5 year old boy, just received a tentative travel date of July 29th. They are very close to us in the process, so we are holding out hope for the July date but we'll have to wait and see.
