Hi bloggy friends. I am posting on some of the families from our adoption agency who are currently in Ethiopia picking up their children. For those of you interested in what this whole adoption process looks like, this is your chance to follow some families who are THERE NOW!!! At least that is, if they blog through their journey-- I know that at least 3 of the 4 are. Here are the blogs to stalk-- I mean watch this week:
Pray for their safety and blessings for them as they are in ET this week.
On another note, I just heard through the grapevine that our agency just signed a contract with another orphanage in Ethiopia-- that brings the AWAA total to THREE orphanages from which children are being referred. That ought to help the referral process from getting too bogged down. I'm not so sure it will decrease wait times, but at least it will help them from INCREASING, which seemed to be the path we were heading down.
And, finally, I checked today to see just where in the world our dossier actually is. Low and behold... it is in Addis Ababa, waiting for delivery. COOL! This doesn't really mean anything other than we have official documents with OUR family's name on them, IN Ethiopia-- that's sort of weird, isn't it? Where do these documents now go???? Behind ALL the other families in front of us :D!
Grace and Peace,
