So, blog friends, I'm going to ask something specific from you today.
That same day I got the word that it would be 5-6 weeks, I emailed and "negotiated" a bit as that was just too long for me. I was told by our ET coordinator that if the piece of paper that we're waiting on to arrive to the Ethiopian Embassy arrives anytime next week, we would be allowed to travel March 13th or 20th. Obviously this makes me squeal with excitement.
So, also obviously, it's been on my mind ALL the time since. I know a lot of you are pray-ers. I know some of you aren't. I could actually care less at this point. If you think good things come to those who stand on their heads and sing a Celine Dion Top 40 hit, then let me know and I'll try that too. But I'm asking all of you, quite selfishly, to pray for that itty bitty piece of paper to make it to the Ethiopian Embassy by next Wednesday. Specific enough? That way we'll for sure get word sometime next week.
Thanks so much for being an encouragement and support. Some of you have gone before me in this adoption world, others are close friends/family that seem to give me a call or a hug when I need it the most. I figure, as good of people as you are, God has no choice but to answer our prayers (or songs) right?
