We made it back from Summit, but I just haven’t had time to get my thoughts down and in order. We were only gone 2 days…why does it take a week to get back in the groove?
We also got some news from our agency this week that we may not be going to court June 1st. The Ethiopian government has put a hold on all court dates for children who were abandoned.
ugh. that would be us.
We don’t know exactly how this hold is going to affect us, yet. Our agency doesn’t know what the government is going to require and there is really just no way to know how long it’s going to take to get everything sorted out. This affects the entire country and many families, so we have some big groups advocating for these children and families to get this resolved as quickly as possible.
One thing I do know, and am clinging to right now, is that God is so good! This process has been cake, for the most part, and we have praised God through all of it. But, my first thought when I heard something was up was that God is still good! I can still praise Him, even though things might not turn out the way I had hoped.
We want to bring our little G home, but he’s God’s child. God loves him even more than we do and I can trust that God is doing what is best…even though I can’t understand how best wouldn’t be having G home with us. I have to have faith.
And, I have to remember that God has not made me G’s mommy, yet. I have no right to demand that from God before He is ready to bless me with it.
That doesn’t mean I’m not praying for a miracle. I’m praying God will work all of this out quickly and we will be able to bring G home right away. If you would please pray for this whole situation, I would appreciate it. There has been an incredible amount of love and support from the other families from All God’s Children! I’m very thankful for the encouragement from those who have already been through the adoption process and just want to encourage the rest of us – and those right there with us, trying to figure it all out. Top that off with all of the love and support from our family and friends, and I am one very blessed girl!
God is good!
