Three Months Waiting

Three Months Waiting.  Not much to report.  Referrals are appearing to take about 12 months now, but that could change at any time for the better or for the worse.  In May, they will begin the new court hearing process.  (two court cases -- first one for any bio parent(s) or family members...once that is held and approved, a second hearing will be scheduled in which the adoptive parents will attend.)  Not sure how much that may delay things.  Elections in Ethiopia are also delaying things. In fact, the State Dept. is advising not to travel to Ethiopia until after the elections are over in June.   Also, the courts typically close for some time over the summer (sometimes from July - Oct), so I'm sure that will affect things as well. 

In a world full of deadlines, dates, goals, and planning, it's easy to get frustrated . . . {sigh}.... but God's timing is always perfect.   He has the blueprint for our life, can see the unseen to us, so He knows what is best for us and our family. (just wish I had a sneak-peak of it sometimes).  All-in-all, another month has flown by.

  1. The waiting can be difficult. It is also refining. It is living out, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding.."
