Q: How much longer?
A: I don't know.
To be honest, once I submit my papers to the Ethiopian government, pretty much everything is out of my hands. I can guess the approximate time for my referral (3 months from the time of my dossier submission) but after that, everything depends on court dates. And embassy/visa appointments (these determine travel dates.)
So, sorry kids. It could be as soon as April (being optimistic) or well into June.
