Three weeks have passed since we received our referral, and almost three weeks since we accepted our referral. We had hoped to know our court date by now. But we don't. I spoke with Imagine yesterday and they said that dates have been slow to come in lately, and court dates a little further out than usual. That being said, they're hopeful of hearing something this week yet, and they put an inquiry in just yesterday with their staff in Ethiopia, asking for an update. Though originally we were hoping for a date by late January or early February, right now I'm just hoping we still get a February date at all...especially with the holidays looming and further delays as a result of that.
The odd thing is, though, that I'm not really worried about it. Of course I want to get the show on the road already, and am both terrified by and wanting that court date to materialize. But so far, I'm finding this wait sooooooo much easier than our referral wait. Perhaps that will change yet, I'm not sure, but this is the most relaxed I've been about our lives in a very long time. The pressure of the referral wait is over, and we're in this for the last time.
