"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

Our File is OPEN in the Ethiopia Court System!

We had great news from our Caseworker at AGCI today-our file is OPEN in the Ethiopian Court System-this can usually take 3-6 weeks under the new 2 trip policy and ours only took
3-1/2 so that isn't too bad!
Now within 1-3 more weeks we should hear what our first set of court dates are (the birth family (police, social worker in her case) and ours-they are usually 2-3 weeks scheduled apart form each other. We are praying for OCTOBER-pray people!! We don't want to have to wait until November or there will be a slimmer chance of getting her home by Christmas-which would be the best Christmas gift ever!


  1. Praying for you guys! So glad you guys got some news!

  2. Great news! Hope you get to travel soon!

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
