We received the call today from our "B" (our case worker at AGCI) that we received court dates today!!! A miracle!!!! If you read my last post, you know that tomorrow is the day that the Ministry of Women's Affairs in Ethiopia is supposedly drastically cutting back on the number of adoptions that they will be processing every day - from 50 to 5. That is a 90% cutback. So we started to pray, and pray, and believe that He is bigger than my fears, bigger than our agency, bigger than the country of Ethiopia. AND HE IS!!!!! We have been given a court date of May 17, and we will hopefully be leaving here on Thursday, May 12, and we will hold our daughter for the first time on Sunday, May 15!!!! We are continuing to ask for your prayers - for the families who continue to wait for court dates, for the government to not implement the 90% cutbacks, and for the children in Ethiopia who are waiting for their forever families. When we go to court, we also need prayer that the letter that MOWA has to send for us to pass court is there - this is definitely up in the air with all the changes that are happening.
Thanks for listening to my ramblings - I am still in shock and awe that we received our court dates!!!! Thank you for praying for us~!!!
