8,942 miles from here, someone has our dossier. We received word that it has arrived in Ethiopia! God continues to bless this journey and it is so evident this is His will for our lives as the path continues to go so smoothly and quickly.
Please pray for the people who will be making the decision of placing our child in our family. We know that God already has this child chosen for us, but we would pray that He would direct their decisions in His perfect time for our good and for His glory.
Now that Ethiopia has our dossier, we have been assigned a number on the waiting list. They will not update us as it changes. We have to contact them if we want to know. So each month I will update our number (I don't want to bug them too much!) as it changes. Their waiting list consists of ALL families waiting to adopt. Not just the people in our category. So we really have no idea where we are on the list of people waiting for a 0-9 month old boy or girl.
We appreciate your prayers and support. This is such an exciting time for us as we pray and patiently wait and prepare for our child to come home.
Our current number is:
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6
