One more step before we can get a court date set. Yes, we were through all the processes, however, things changed earlier this month and now the Bethany Ethiopian team is scrambling to retrieve the original documents on all papers instead of photo copies. All these, we are told, will be collected and presented to the appropriate people on December 3rd.
OK, our prayer is that all the papers are in fact the correct ones and that it's a simple approval. We ask God to soften the hearts of those who have authority over the girls cases. We pray we will hear the results from this soon after and that we are cleared to get a court date set up!
Courts will close in January for a few weeks and if we don't get a court date set before closure, it will be delayed for weeks.
On a much brighter note.....we got an update on our 2 beautiful girls this afternoon! Our family recorded a video of all of us explaining who we are and a little greeting for them. Their social worker showed them the video and while they watched it, they were being recorded for us to see their reactions! It is priceless!! Oh my! They are so sweet and keep asking when we are coming.
You alone are in control! Our hope and faith are in You and we know you can move mountains and care about these girls. If it be Your will, we ask that you allow the process to be approved soon and allow us to travel before court closure. Love and watch over these 2 darlings and bring us to them soon. Amen.
