Good News

For a very long time, our prayer has been "EXPEDITE". God is now answering it in unprecedented ways!!!!

We heard this from our agency today:

"Once [our agency in Ethiopia] has all the documents from a successful court date - which can take several weeks - we can schedule your Embassy date two weeks from the time we submit your documents to the Embassy! We no longer have to wait for the grass roots investigations to occur, we no longer have to wait for the Embassy to give us a green light for families to travel. This will make scheduling Embassy dates much easier. This is indeed good news."

Basically, this means that our wait time from court to Embassy dates [the 2 different trips we have to make] have been shortened by as much as a couple weeks! Perhaps from 8-10 weeks down to 6-8 weeks. This is amazing!!!!!

Please keep praying. We received confirmation today that our paperwork is at the courts and it could take anywhere from 10 days to weeks to get our court dates scheduled. Please continue praying that our 2 scheduled court dates by the end of next week!!

As I posted on my Facebook status tonight, "It's hard to describe the love I feel for these 2 Ethiopian beauties whom I've never met and didn't come from my womb. Supernatural."
