Adoption Update

We got a call yesterday from our caseworker with some very bad news regarding our adoption. Apparently Almaz (the woman who runs the baby house in Ethiopia) is having a hard time getting the needed paperwork from the region Baby M. is from for our next court case, scheduled for Friday, the 23rd. We have been told there are two families affected and these are the hardest cases she's ever done. She has said we need to "pray for a miracle" but it is very unlikely we will pass court and it may be some time before we are able to travel. So, we're looking for prayers, good thoughts, karma, anything you can send our way would be so appreciated! We are very upset by this news and are trying to remain positive and hopeful.

Oh no - that's dreadful! I'm so very sorry. The fact that something like regional paperwork could hold up a process as important as an adoption is unbelievable. I will be praying for something fantastic and unexpected to happen this Friday.

Oh no!! We had a major hick-up in our adoption as well. And it was so amazing the prayer support and kindness so many showed to us. I know the uncertainty and difficulty is rotton and discouraging. But I know it will keep you on your knees in prayer and faith in God's loving care for you. Hang in there! And I can testify too, that Almaz is going to do EVERYTHING she can for you. She is a magic worker!! Thinking of you!!
