Sometimes, God works in ways I can't even describe.
That was my chat status on the 14th of November That was the day I became an older sister again...and a girl with ten siblings.
Thank you so much for your emails and comments expressing your prayer for our family. I am immensely grateful. For each and every one of you.
Most of you probably know that my parents were in Ethiopia last week for our court date for our adoption. Due to a mix up with our agency, we found out that the actual court date wasn't until the 21st of November, but the court was working hard to pass us. It was emotional for us back in the US because we didn't know what was going on or what had gone wrong. Then, Tuesday morning came. I came downstairs to little children screaming and laughing and my mom having a little dance party in the kitchen. "We passed court." No way. No way, God. You did not just do that. But, He did. He always does.
I love the way God works. Mixes things up to test your trust, your faith. He definitely tested mine, saying I still have to wait. More days. More time before these kids can become family. When you pass court, the children you are adopting become legally yours. It's so much more than that. They were already a part of our family...now it's forever. So, I introduce to you The Four. Forever ours.
