  5. EthioPAP YOU passed today? WOW congratulations:)
    Please, can You still keep updating this forum few more weeks? This is so valuable for us, who are waiting....

    Do you know why someone had the MOWA´s letter and the others didn´t? What might be the difference between these families?

  6. Of course I will still update!

    An agency had some of their families pass and some didn't citing no MOWA letters as the reason. I'm not sure why the letters didn't get written for those families, but I know this is a hard day for them...

  7. 1:38 PM, can you email me at jewelsavila@yahoo.com? I was curious to know the agency, b/c our director said 9 were being heard today, but they didn't know which ones?

  11. We passed today too! I am interested to hear people's travel dates because our agency is expecting ours to be in the later part of September, which I was surprised at. I guess I was hoping for the end of August still.

  16. Congratulations to everybody that has passed court this week! What an exciting week!

    Our original court date was scheduled for June 5, but was obviously delayed due to the ban. We have not yet received our new court date. Is there anybody else in the same boat as us... had a date delayed b/c of the ban and now anxiously awaiting their new date???
