Adoption Update

Yay!  There was a referral for a baby girl this week--so unofficially we are number 22! 

The courts will be closing in Ethiopia from August 6-September 27 because of the rainy season.  The Ethiopian New Year also takes place during this time.  Typically court closure in Ethiopia reduces the number of referrals during that time.

J and I have been following Ordinary Hero on their current trip to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  We have been moved by this blog, and particulary the entry about their trip to Korah, the dump where 130,000 plus people live.  Unfathomable, but real stuff.

Also, recently saw this video posted by another blog friend.  It is a beautifully put together snapshot of Ethiopia. Check it out below. :)

  1. I have a good friend on that trip. She brought her daughter home from Ethiopia last year and was thrilled at the chance to return. She even got to meet her daughter's birthmom this time. (She didn't show up last year) Her posts have been great!! Blessings on your journey--I love the whole adoption adventure!! God is so faithful!
