Good news today - we received word from our agency that our in-country representative in Ethiopia has signed a contract with an orphanage that has children available for adoption (even infants). I don't know what that means as far as getting a referral, but I'm praying it means that our child(ren) is/are there waiting for us. And, with the court closures looming, we're really hoping to hear good news soon! From what I understand, there is still a chance that we could squeeze in before the closure.
So, I'm praying for two miracles this week - a referral for us and a referral for the other CHI family with their dossier in Ethiopia (Jenni & Jim). We would love to travel with them- THIS SUMMER! :)
I'm trying to keep my excitement level in check - nothing is guaranteed with all of this, but I also feel that we have to believe it can happen. We trust in God's plan, and we know that, with faith and prayer, anything is possible.
