i just wanted to give a brief update on our process. two weeks ago i asked anybody who reads this blog to please pray for a miracle that our paperwork would be submitted to the american embassy last week. i just wanted to give my bloggy friends (an incredibly riveting) update, which is this: we have no idea what happened that day. we may or may not have been submitted, and as of now we may or may not have been submitted at all. communication between our agency's people in ethiopia and their people here in the states seems to be completely blocked. we don't know exactly the reason, but it is looking like we are about to go into another weekend of not knowing. i don't love this. i am craving an update like i craved chocolate shakes and saurkraut when i was pregnant. the only problem is that i can't send chad out to pick me up an update from the local grocer, so i am learning to wait. learning. to. wait. i am in this waiting place, where if find i am not alone and so i pray for my baby girl and for my friends who are here with me in this most frusterating place. praying for their children and their hearts as we remind each other that we serve a faithful God and wait in expectation for Him to make paths clear.
"In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation." Psalm 4
i hope to have more news next week!
