No #3

We did not pass court again today for the third time. Our son's birth mother was not able to leave her work at the gold mine to make the trip to Addis Ababa for the hearing. She must testify in order for the adoption to be completed.

She has been granted a leave of absence from work in early April, and so our case is scheduled for 4/6. A representative from our adoption agency is going to escort her on the journey.

Three weeks feels like a very long time to wait. Thank you continuing to pray for us, for Little Brother, and for his first mom's situation. I know that God has a plan in all this.

I am sorry to hear that. I am thankful though that they have located the birth mother. Praying for you guys and your sweet boy. Hoping he will be home very soon.

That is so hard. :( 3 weeks can seem such an eternity when you are waiting for your precious little one. We will be praying that his birthmama is able to make it in April and that your travel dates will come VERY quickly.
