4 Months Waiting

We were officially 4 months waiting for a referral yesterday. The wait times are estimated about 9 months for an infant boy right now so we are approximately 1/2 way there. January was a good referral month so far for AWAA - if I have counted right there have been approximately 19 referrals total. What a good start to the year, praise God! We keep praying for God to continue moving through this process as quickly as he has in the past month, who knows maybe it will be less than 9 months for a referral for us!!!!

Please Pray

Friday January 16th, 2009

Please join us in praying tonight for various families that have recieved referrals from AWAA. They found out today that the ET government representative has "changed her mind" about writing their recommendation letter because of a license issue with this particular orphanage. They are to go to court on Tuesday and if there is any hope in them passing there will need to be a miracle by the hands of God. Please pray with us because he is almighty and can make miracles happen. Please pray for the following, we know from experience that there is power in prayer!!!!

*Pray that God will change "M" at agency's heart
*Pray that the case worker in Ethiopia will find documentation of prior cases similar to theirs that would ease "M" hear and make her willing to write the letter of recommendation
*Also pray that the families will remain faithful at this difficult time
*Pray that God will bring these children home to their Forever Families

More Vaccinations

Second round of vaccinations is complete! We got our second shot for the Hepatitis A & B. One more to go!!! Yesterday 4 referrals came through 2 boys and 2 girls, praise God! We are praying that 2009 brings lots of referrals. The more that come in the quicker we get to meet our son. It is hard to believe that sometime this year we will be parents. It seems so unreal.
