Today is Yosef and Biniam's birthday (though in Ethiopia it was yesterday as they are several hours ahead of us.) It is sad not being with them for their first birthday (especially since they aren't for sure "ours" yet), but hopefully it won't be much longer. HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOSEF AND BINIAM! We love you and hope to bring you home very, very soon!
(I just heard from our agency today. They received a call from the "father" of the family earlier this week assuring them he did want to get things settled quickly and that the agency's lawyer would be hearing from the family's lawyer soon, but hasn't happened yet. (Personally I think they missed getting things "settled quickly" awhile back...) SO we took this to at least mean that yes this family is still wanting to relinquish the boys, it's just a matter of time. And let's hope it happens soon!!!)
