Praying Hard...

that we'll hear the news that we've been longing to hear, "You've been submitted to the US embassy". It's been 6 weeks since our court date and Holt has said that 6-8 weeks is the "normal" time to wait before your case is submitted. Of course, with the unknown delays, we just don't know.

I'm trying not to get my hopes up today. Last week I felt so sure that it was OUR WEEK and so deflated when we got the news that we had not been submitted. Those that have traveled this two-trip road before us have said that the time between court and embassy is the longest, hardest, most emotional time, and BOY, have they been right. I want my baby home so badly!

If we don't hear news today, then we'll have to wait until next Tuesday, since Tuesdays are the day that our agency receives update information from Ethiopia. Come on embassy submission! Our little boy needs us.

The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD will answer my prayer.
Psalms 6:9

But in my distress I cried out to the LORD; yes, I prayed to my God for help. He heard me from his sanctuary; my cry to him reached his ears.
Psalms 18:6


  1. i think its time to call these days the "Tumultuous Tuesdays"

  2. I like that :). You've had it WAY worse, but all of these "unknown delays" have my head spinning. I just want to hear something TRUELY positive and specific to our case. These mass emails about the program in general are frustrating. Hang in there. Our time will come!
