Guess What.....

My case got submitted to embassy on February 29th!! Seriously ya'll that is how crazy thing have been. I couldn't find the time to sit down and blog about it, Ha! You want to know the best part though? I got an e-mail today from the embassy telling me they were requesting an interview with Isaiah's birth mom. That is great news! That means there is movement with my case, Praise the Lord!! The e-mail explained that typically it takes 2-3 weeks for the birth mom to get an appointment. If her appointment goes well, I should get clearance to travel for mine and Isaiah's embassy appointment in Addis and then we will BOTH be on our way home forever!!! I have been so happy today at the thought that he is really getting close to coming home!!!

My sweet boy is 9 months old now and just look at that head of curls!! I just love him so much!! I can not get over how big he is getting :) I can't wait to have him back in my arms!! I am super blessed because a friend of mine is traveling back to Ethiopia next week to stay until she gets her embassy appointment and that means I will get some updates on my boy and a picture or two :)

I have some specific prayer request if ya'll would like to join me in praying:
  • Please pray that they are able to locate Isaiah's birth mom and that she complies with her appointment and shows up and that there are no problems
  • Pray that Isaiah continues to grow and is healthy and that the Lord continues to prepare his heart for me and I am praying that he remembers me when I get back there. I am sending some pictures of he and I with my friend who is going over there next week.
  • PLEASE pray for my friends who are all waiting for embassy clearance as well. I have 5 specific friends who all traveled within weeks of me who are all waiting for embassy.
  • I have been praying for a while that the Lord would provide a way for me to stay home with Isaiah for 6 weeks once he is home, to allow for bonding/attaching. Being a single mom I know that is asking a lot, but I also know our God is bigger then any paycheck!
Thanks friends for your support and prayers. Some of you I don't even know, but I know you have prayed for me and my boys and I will always be thankful for that. God bless you!
