You guessed it...

...wait til Saturday. I promise I'm not making this up. Apparently, it's pretty common for the phone lines to get jammed in Ethiopia, and that happened today of all days. Our caseworker tried to get through all day to Belay but had no success. We thought we'd hear news by noon today, so by around 2:00, I was a ball of nerves. We finally got an email from our caseworker telling us that she'll contact us tomorrow and will continue trying to get through in the meantime. In her email to us, she described this waiting as "torturous."

I wish I had something uplifting to say. Mary's description was spot-on. Sorry for not posting earlier. Thank you to all you sweet people writing to say you're praying. It's humbling.

Other countries just don't move the same speed that we're used to here. Hope you get good news tomorrow.
