Tentative Travel Dates- Take 2

Well, they're called tentative for a reason, right??? We got a phone call from our agency's program director saying that we had a court date on Thursday and we did not pass through. The Ministry of Women's Affairs (the government agency in Ethiopia that processes adoptions) did not send over our approval letter to the courts, so the judge could not finalize the adoption. It happened to our entire travel group.

We have another court date scheduled for early December and got a new tentative travel date of December 13th. We've got another shot to make it before Christmas!

Find comfort in realizing that God is all knowing!

He knew about this way before you did. The things that you don't know, He already does. Trust in Him and know that His delays are full of purpose. Even though you probably know these things already, and even though I'm sure it doesn't make the wait any easier, remember that he is being well taken care of, just as you mentioned in a previous post. No need to worry, Elijah will unite with you quickly.

Love you guys! Oh, and Matthew, Jesse misses you tons! He especially does when he can't find a golf buddy to beat. :-)
