3 Months Waiting...

Despite the discouraging news regarding all Ethiopian adoptions we continue to trust that God is in control and that He has a plan through the latest set backs. In short from our understanding, the Ministry of Women and Children Affairs in Ethiopia abruptly decided to reduce the number of adoption cases to be processed on a daily basis by about 90%. This will greatly effect the waiting period for many children waiting to be matched with families. Our hearts are saddened as this means that these children will be institutionalized for longer periods of time which compounds many more issues. This last week we received some encouraging news though regarding this so we know God is still at work. We continue to covet your prayers as we wait patiently!
