patiently waiting for a phone call from our caseworker. Okay… it’s probably more like obsessively staring at my phone and willing our agency to call.
Ethiopia has been experiencing some changes and we will definitely wait a bit longer for our little one. However, nothing, I repeat nothing is closing or halting adoption in Ethiopia at this time. There are no current concerns about Ethiopia closing to adoptions, it’s just going to take longer. I feel good about that, but not this wait. Here is my transparent statement of the day: I hate this.
This post is not a rant. In fact, I feel more committed to Ethiopia than ever. I just want you to know things will take longer, we aren’t going to switch countries and this is not going to be fun. I have confidence, however, that a year from now we will look back and say “Okay God, now we understand why all that happened.” I’ve always been a forward thinker so I find comfort in knowing that Someday I’ll say those words. For now it’s time to focus on the present. Thank you God for what you’re teaching us now, and by the way, if it’s not too much trouble, it would be really awesome if we got a call this week.
