A friend asked me recently "So what's going on with your adoption because you haven't posted anything lately" Basically we're still in the middle of paperwork. We've gotten our physicals done and have the paperwork to the boys' pediatrician so that can get filled out. I've requested several documents and am just waiting for them to get here. We're working on our autobiographies and then there are getting our reference letter info sent out and drawing out the floor plan of our house, emergency evacuation plans and financial info. My original goal was to have most of it done by the end of July...well...this summer we've been enjoying having the boys out of school and just hanging out. It'll all get done...eventually.
It's been amazing to see how God has been working. Since we announced our adoption He has led us to several new friendships and a new support network. He keeps placing people in our paths that just continue to encourage us on this journey.
The boys are still excited about the whole thing and pray often for "our children in Ethiopia" We've had a lot of talks lately about some of the hardships orphans face...even those who find new families and it's been sweet to hear them talk about ways to help and love them through it all.
We appreciate your continued prayers. Please also pray for the adoptive families and their waiting children affected by the courts closing in Ethiopia during the rainy season and delays with the American embassy.
