I have been wanting to post all day. I really have.
The problem? I have no words!
A lot of conflicting emotions--Yes.
We have court tomorrow in Ethiopia (which will actually be sometime during the night b/c they are 8 hours ahead of us). Again.
As most of you already know, we didn't pass the first time (on my birthday, no less).
A necessary paper didn't make its way there & a birth relative was unable to be there due to illness. That's been 2 weeks ago.
Well, here we are. I want to tell you that I woke up this morning in great anticipation & confidence that this would be it. I would be looking like Pinnochio if I did.
But here's where God is so good....He really blessed me today through the care & encouragement of some wonderful friends. I received phone calls, a text, some comments on my blog, emails & instant message things (I'm still learning FB) that totally picked me up & dusted me off. These girls get this crazy emotional roller coaster of adoption from a "Mommy" perspective, & I am blessed by their willingness to
lovingly kick me in the butt lift me up.
So, here we go. I'm ready for Round 2. I may not be confident in the outcome, but I'm confident that come celebrating or commiserating, we're not alone. And that's good news.
