Waiting Again

Well, we haven’t heard an official word on if we passed court or not, but our case worker was pretty sure we had not.  She was only able to speak briefly to Almaz in Ethiopia.  We are thinking if an abandonment case had passed, Almaz would think that was big enough to remember in their short conversation.

So, we are just waiting. 

Patiently, waiting.

And, praying.

For patience to wait. :)

God is so awesome though.  He brought my best friend and her family all the way from Georgia to stay with me the night we had court.  He knew I needed a distraction, and it worked.  Thank you, Lord!

Praying that this gets resolved SOON. We are stuck in this same boat with you. Our court date is tonight but I'm thinking we won't hear anything either.

I can't even begin to imagine the roller coaster of emotions that you are on. Your adamant focus on God through this whole things has been a true inspiration for me. I will continue to pray for you.

My heart just dropped for you when I read this. I am so sorry that no only do you not have good news, but you don't even have confirmation of the bad news. Waiting is so hard, especially at this stage.

Praying for your family and your beautiful baby boy.

Thanks for all of the prayers and support during our wait!
Jessica - I am praying for you as well and am glad to have such great people "in this boat" with us.
Tisha - I have to say I've had my fair share of times of anxiety and whining. I feel like blogging when I'm feeling God's strength and want to share how awesome it is, but I can't pretend I'm always there.
