Last Thursday I posted about loving where I am now and being in complete peace. I even shared with Justin about what God was teaching me about trust and letting go of my fears. I told him that I had no idea what it meant, but that I was sure there was a reason for it.
Well, Friday afternoon I read an article that said Ethiopian adoptions would be reduced by 90%. Noone really no what this means yet for Ethiopian adoption, but it would severely slow things down. I can't even imagine how many years it would be before we received a referral and then how many years after that until we could bring our daughter home. It could mean that the children who are in orphanages now would grow up there. Many of you know that we started in the Rwanda program and in August they stopped accepting dossiers, so we switched to the Ethiopia program. That was not a fun time in my life and i don't wish to relive it.
I have been praying all weekend. I continue to have an urgency to pray for the orphans in Ethiopia, but I do not feel worried. I have seen God's hand all over our adoption journey thus far. I completely trust Him.
With that being said, I ask you all to please pray for the families and children who are waiting. Please pray for the government of Ethiopia as they make decisions that will affect millions.
Today our agency sent us a link to this call to the action. Please pray, sign the petition, and pass it along to everyone you can.
