Monday in Addis Ababa

The day is getting started right now in Addis Ababa. It's Monday morning already over there, 6:30 a.m. I'm trying to fight the growing knot in my stomach with prayer. We're praying for favor and understanding in a meeting that could be taking place any time now...

Clarification: we were told certain meetings should be happening at any point this week, not necessarily on Monday, though we still haven't heard anything yet. Thank you for all the continued prayers.

Oh Lori... I know how hard it must be to wait... I've been thinking about a passage in Matthew addressing a father who needs Jesus to heal his son. He is a doubter (like me) but Jesus almost wills this man to have faith... and the man says "I believe! Help my unbelief!" So in the same breath he declares his faith, but his need for Jesus to actually give him faith. That's how I feel about now, and I thought it might help you, too. Just to know you don't have to (and can't) do it alone... we're all here to pray for you and help you. I hope you feel that comfort today!

I've been following your blog. We also adopted via Gladney and brought our son, Zane, home in August. Your faith in what must be a frustrating, heartbeaking, stomach-in-knot situations is a great testimony and encouragement to me and I'm sure the many others following your adoption story. I loved reading your kind words of the Gladney staff and all they do, and especially of Belay. He is wonderful and they all work so hard. You are right in that you have wonderful, well connected, thorough, professional and well intentioned advocates! We pray God will change the hearts of the decision makers to unite you soon with your Abenezer.

Hey Lori, thinking of you guys constantly and praying that you'll get some clarity this week!

I just read "there is no me without you" and was just floored by it. It really makes the stories you hear come alive. These are real people with real histories. Fascinating book, I can see why you love that author.
