April 29, 2011 was the official date but I just found out this morning. It’s crazy to think that after 6 months of paperwork and doctor’s appointments and a roller coaster of emotions, now we are just waiting! I feel like I’ve been given a Mother’s Day present this year! Hoping and praying that in the next 12-18 months we will see the faces of our precious babies!
Just this morning I read Matthew 17:20, which says “I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain move from here to there and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
I am will repeat this verse over and over and over during our wait as a reminder that God can move all of the mountains that are standing in the way of Ethiopia adoptions right now. I do not believe that we would have made it to the wait list if God didn’t intend to bless us with Ethiopian babes. It may take longer than we once thought but we will wait as long as it takes for them to be placed in our arms!
