The Final Verdict on our Case...

Okay, so I know so many of you have been waiting on pins and needles
to hear on the final verdict for our case today.

I think I will just go ahead and tell you, and give you the rest of
the story after.

WE PASSED!!!

WE PASSED!!!

WOOHOO!!!!!!!

Yes, it’s true.  We went to the orphanage this morning, thinking we’d
hear something while we were there.  But 1pm came, our driver picked
us up at the orphanage, we went back to our guest house, went for
lunch, got back to our guest house again, and still nothing….This did
not make me feel good, but I still had hope.

My parents and Wes went downstairs for a bit to have coffee in the
lobby.  I laid down on our bed, and just rested for a bit.

We had met up with a family that had court today, and they told us
that court was delayed until the afternoon, so we figured that the
same would be true for us.  A little more hope….

After laying in bed for a bit, Wes came up and decided to rest for a
bit too.  But after just a couple of minutes, at 4:04 pm our agency
rep called us.  My heart started to race.  I was so nervous.  I could
hear her over the phone say to Wes, “Why haven’t you called me today?
Do you not care about your case?”  Yeah, she was kidding.  A good
sign.  Besides…we didn’t call because we didn’t want to be a pain.  We
knew she would call us when she knew anything.

Finally she told us that MOWA had written positive comments and
approved our case.

HALLELUJIA!!!

Thank you all so much for praying.  We know it absolutely helped!
We are rejoicing today, and in just a couple of days, those little
ones will be with us full time (They are saying Monday.  Happy
Valentine’s Day to us!).  WOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!!

It’s a good good day here in Ethiopia.

  11. You had said all along that 02/14 was your dream date for your embassy date but maybe that date was placed in your mind for another reason. God's timing is perfect! What a grand place Valentine's Day will forever hold in your hearts. I am at work trying to hold back my happy tears! I love you guys and I am so so so happy that you all have peace and soon you will have those babies FOREVER! Now on to praying for a quick embassy date!!!
