more waiting....

I thought this time around, the waiting would be much easier. I mean, we actually kind of like the time to continue adjusting while we get ready to bring another little one into our home.

But there are different waits this time.

We wait to get L'il B into a new orphanage. The new orphanage is the best place for her while in Ethiopia, but there are a couple paperwork glitches, so she can't move there yet. This we have been waiting on since Oct. 1.

We wait to start working with our new agency, AAI out of Washington. Yes, we LOVE Gladney, but AAI is also a great agency and works specifically with the new orphanage, so we have to make the change. But until L'il B is at the new orphanage, we have to wait for AAI to officially begin working with us. So no dossier paperchase, yet. Hey, maybe that is a good thing....

We wait for our homestudy to be completed. Our homestudy worker injured her arm, so can't type right now. Hmmm, I'll type it for her, and give a glowing recommendation.

Well, the best waiting to do is . . . . waiting on the LORD. Really, what else can we do?

I can't wait to watch God's plan unfold. What a beautiful family. I can't believe that the characteristic of waiting never changes! Check out this blog, she is lovely and seems to be very knowledgeable about Ahope... you could email her directly with any of your questions... http://www.abushel-and-apeck.blogspot.com/

Oddly enough, the waiting is NOT easier this time is it? Ack. I keep you in my prayers all the time. I know it will work out in God's time but it is tough while the bureaucratic stacks are made. Hang in there! Love M

Our first time around with our adoption from China was a long wait with several delays along the way. This time, in our adoption from Ethiopia, we've had a little extra time with delays here and there but it seems to be different. We definitely want it to move forward, but this time we know the end-game so it seems to be a more contented wait (if there could be such a thing?). Definitely just a different sense this time around. Maybe more of an anticipation. Here's to hoping that paperwork gets typed up ASAP!

All I can say about AAI as an organization is WOW! God is at work there. My brother's family is using them and has had a great experience. You are in good hands with them.
