They are adorable and I can't wait to post their pictures once we pass court.
I am sorry I had to leave you all hanging from my last post for so long. As you know we really wanted to adopt older children but our agency really did not want us to adopt out of birth order. After much prayer on both of our parts they allowed us to review the file of the waiting children we had been asking about for many weeks.
It is a total God thing and I have no doubt these are the children he has meant for us all along.
Some day I will post about all the miracles that have happened to bring us to this point, for now I am just going to enjoy the moment.
I overnighted our final payment and all of our signed referral documents this morning.
Now the wait is on for a court date. The Ethiopian courts close in early August so we are running out of time to get a date before closure. Our agency is hopeful we can get a date before the August deadline. Will you please say a prayer that this happens so our children do not have to wait until the fall to come home to us?
I truly cannot express how over the moon with joy I am right now. The wait truly is worth it once you see the faces of the children that were meant for your family.
Thanks so much for all your love and support during this very long and, at times, emotionally exhausting journey.
Bring on a court date! I'm ready to head off to Ethiopia and collect our children!
Won't that be a wonderful day?
p.s. Paige has been carrying their pictures around showing everyone her new brother and sister. All of the kids are excited, but her excitement is contagious and just to sweet.
