We Can Pray!

Some of our adoption friends are going through a VERY VERY difficult time right now. As I read their blog last night, I just kept thinking "what can I do for them?" We live so far away from each other, but I want to do something. Well, today I am thankful for the power of prayer! We can all do something for this family. Prayer is the one thing they need and the one thing we can do.
Please read their story here.

We received an update on our baby last night! WooooHoooo!
She is GORGEOUS! And super smiley.
She is starting to look older now........not so much like a young baby anymore.
Yet, very petite (light and little).
I must say that I am so thankful for the photos we have received during this wait.
Even though she is not with us as she is growing, I have been able so see photos of her every stage of her life. I can't wait until I can post a picture:)
**Please pray for the Ethiopia courts as they prepare to open next week**
***Please pray that all goes well with our court date***

........UNTIL COURTS OPEN!!!!!!!
Well, we made it through one month of courts
being closed and we have one left.
I am NEVER happy to say "good bye" to summer but this year I am really anxious for fall to come! I can't wait for the phone call telling us that our baby is legally ours!! We feel like she has been ours since referral day.....but what a day that will be to hear that the government sees her as ours too. We are getting really really really really anxious/excited to bring her home.
