we wait some more

We got a call yesterday that the courts in Ethiopia will not open October 5th as originally stated. They are closing for the next 2 weeks for training. We hope they will begin processing cases on the 12th, but do not have confirmation of that at this point.

It is so sad to me that we are getting inched back a little here and a little there, but trying to cling to what I know to be true. I am just so ready to have him here!!

Not exactly the kind of birthday gift I like. :)

Lindsey said...

So sorry guys! What crummy news, but I have good news: God knows exactly the date and time!

Abby said...

Ugh- hang in there. God's timing is never off. Never.

Traci said...

Oh I am so sorry- patience is only a virtue if you don't have to wait, right? Ha ha. And - happy birthday! 38 hurt me too- but I've learned some things this year- the most important being that grey hairs and a few wrinkles are no match for a good highlighting job and a photofacial- miraculous I tell you! Just miraculous.

Praying for the 12th. He is infinitely in control, infinitely in love with you, and with him.

We got our referral on July 23rd, and am soooooo ready to get him home. Trusting in our Mighty God today, and knowing He has this in the palm of His hand!!!! Praying for you guys!
