Could this be the week?

As we head into another week of feverishly checking our email 'in case' we get the ONE from the Embassy, I have hope.  I really do.  All of me wants to say it's never going to happen, but I know that's a lie.  Two families who were submitted with us were cleared to travel and begin their trip this week.  Congrats to the Rudstroms & Goebelbeckers who will be bringing home sweet Tizita and Henok.  Blessings for a safe trip and sweet reunion!  

So, it at least gives us hope that some cases are moving.  We also received an email on Friday that little Elliana is sick and on antibiotics.  Certainly news no mother wants to hear when her baby is so far away.  Please keep Ellie in your prayers this week that she is feeling better soon (AND, that she receives word that her Mommy and Daddy are coming soon)!

Also please keep our traveling families in your prayers.  Although it seems like their journey is coming to an end... it's only just beginning.  Hoping they can give us some tips since they are going before us!

I better get to bed soon... I'll be up most of the night stalking my email!!  :) 


  1. I'm totally with you hoping we hear some news this week!

  2. I'm praying Elliana will recover quickly from her illness. I hope you're right about this week; it would be wonderful to see more cases approved soon!!! =)

  3. I have a ton of hope for this week too! Praying for Elliana to recover.

  4. I have a really good feeling about good news coming for you all this week!

  5. Oh I hope you hear soon! Our kiddos were both sick when we picked them up:(. I'm praying your little girl has a speedy recovery. Please keep us posted! Praying with you...

  6. Praying you get great news this week - miss you and stocking your blog and others till we get news :) Yes I check my email 10 times a day.
