Let me start off by saying, we did not get a court date. :( But we did get an update on our daughter. Yeah!!! They sent us 2 new pictures and a medical update. She is healthy. She is 5 months now and is 11.5 pds. She is 22 inches long. The doctors report said that she can roll from stomach to her back and she is imitating sounds. It was so awesome to read that she is progessing but it was also so hard because I am missing so much. I am so happy that she is healthy.

When Rick saw the pictures of her he thought is was a different baby. They had her in boy clothes and a blue blanket. It looked like her to me because I was looking at her face. She has grown some more hair. It was so funny because it was slicked down to her head like a comb-over. lol. She is so cute!!! Don't worry honey, I will put you in girls clothes!

Court dates are becoming slimmer before the year ends so I keep praying. In the meantime, I will continue to stare at her pictures!

In the meantime, We head to Kansas City this week for a baby shower that my friend Cindy and my mom are putting on for us.

Come on court date!!!!!!

I want to see new pictures......
Gabre had her hair slicked down in one of her pictures and her video. I have no idea what that is about.
