What a rollercoaster!

So the past week has been quite a roller coaster ride! MOWA (ministry of women's affairs) in ET halted all adoptions of abandoned children in the city of Addis pending an investigation. We were devasted to hear that we we were affected by this hold and were told to expect at least a several weeks delay. We began praying hard that this hold would be short and that God's hand would be in the investigations.

Then, last Thurs I recieved another call that there is still hope that we could pass court on May 26th. Apparently, our boy was abandoned just outside of Addis and other agencies have had success in passing court in similar situations. Praise God and still praying hard!!!

Then today, we received another call lettingus know that the power of attorney we sent in our dossier last year is no longer valid and we needed to have another one notarized and state certified and in their office by Fri at 9 am in order to have a chance of passing court. Wow, really?! So I will be driving to Columbia in the morning to get this document state certified and then Fed Exed to America World. We want Silas home!!!

Please pray for these children and families affected by this abandonment hold. It truly is agonizing not to be able to hold our children and not knowing how long we may have to wait.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose
