I wrote that last post and then discovered yesterday that we moved from #24 to #23.
Moving one spot on the list since early August is pretty discouraging. In August I was given "2-5 more months waiting for a referral," but now I think we are watching that time frame double. I know from friends who have been there that the orphanages in Ethiopia are full. FULL. Of children waiting to be adopted. So...understandably, I'm having a hard time reconciling that with the years-long waiting list here.
Please continue to pray for our future kid(s), but today will you pray for us?
