When I am Weak, He is Strong

Today I am greatful that my Dad is the King of the Universe, that nothing is out of His control, that He has a plan for us, that He went to batt for us, and that He is strong when I am weak.

I also would like to apologize for my pity party yesterday. In my selfishness, I forgot about the four families who failed court because of this document. They were in Ethiopia waiting for court when this change was made. That meant that instead of being able to hold their child, play with them, kiss them, give them presents, they had to just go home. They got to see their child, but they were not able to interact with them. Their next court date is in 6 weeks from now, I am  praying that on this day God fights for their families. I can only imagine the pain and disappointment they must have felt and are still feeling. Please pray with me that they all pass court and their visas come quickly so these precious children do not have to wait any longer!

Thanks to everyone for all your prayers and support. Thanks to my friends who said they believed in our adoption, when I stopped believing. Please continue to pray that Ethiopia is satisfied with their document requests and we can continue on without any more hold ups. I love you guys!


  1. Oh I'm so glad to hear the good news for you! I've heard about these poor families who didn't pass court because of this change. It just seems so unfair. What a battle it is to get these children home!

    I still think you should come for a visit :)

  2. This is such great news!!! So happy that it worked out and your docs will be there soon!!!!!
