Adoption Update- Sort Of...

I'm not currently at liberty to go into detail, but we really need people to be praying for Yosef and Mihret and their adoption, along with at least 13 other families currently in the process. It's looking like it's going to be a little while before our agency's license gets renewed, which means we just need to sit tight. Unless there's a drastic, immediate miracle, I'm not going to get to know Mihret while she's still 5. I still hope to know Yosef before he turns 10. I just hate that these kids are growing up in an orphanage instead of with their family who loves them so much. And yet I have to trust God that with whatever "stuff" is going on with this that He is sovereignly ordering our steps. Not that I believe God wants kids to grow up without families. Quite the opposite is true, that's why He sets the solitaire in families. But God still reigns. Exabier achen ingesal:Lazelalem menista yinges. Our God reigns, forever Your Kingdom reigns. Lord, may Your reign be established in the lives of my kids and the 13 other families who are waiting.

Heather,
You don't know me but we adopting from Ethiopia also. We have 7 children (bio and adopted) and are praying for 2 more. I found your site through someone elses blog on Ethiopia. Everyday I check and pray that you are going to get your children. Your trust in God is inspirational. May He continue to comfort you through this difficult time.

You don't know me but I just wanted to let you know that I'll be praying for you. We only have one child, Olivia and we plan on trying to adopt within the next 5 years. :) Just to let you know that we are in North Carolina too only we're in the Whitakers/Rocky Mount area. Have a great day!
