JITTERY and Can't Sit Still

WE GOT IT!  We have our court date!  November 11th, we will meet with an Ethiopian judge and he/she will make our kiddos legally ours in Ethiopia!

That means....  We need to be in-country a week from today (Friday morning)
That means....  We will need to fly out mid next week
That means....  We have 20-30+ hours of travel ahead of us, each way
That means....  We're behind on packing

Please pray with us that our beloved travel-person can find inexpensive airfare!  10 days is super short notice, 7 days before being in-country is even crazier!  I was loosing hope that we'd be traveling anytime soon, and was envisioning this first trip taking place in December.  I guess God has different plans!  I was on my knees earlier today simply praising Him for His goodness, His love, and His timing.  He is good!

Thank you for all your thoughts, prayers, advice and help!  We're excited and we appreciate your involvement in this process.  We won't know when we travel the second time until sometime after we get back from our first trip.  We'll keep y'all posted! :)  Blessings!


  1. I can't believe how excited I am for you. Do you get to see the children on this trip? I sure hope so. I will continue to pray that the trip and the proceedings go smoothly. :)

    1. Yes, we DO get to meet them! We are SOOOOO excited! :) And a little freaked out! :) We will meet them either next Friday or Saturday. :) That is one of the things we have to testify before the judge- that we have met the kids and, yes, we will adopt them :)

  2. Have you tried Golden Rule Travel? They have a special humanitarian rate for adoption trips.
