We had our last adoption class today. It's nice to be done with everything like that.
No news on the medical for our possible 2 1/2 year old and no news on a second referral yet. The wait feels like forever and the phone rings are always hopeful that it's our adoption agency calling with good news. There are several couples from our agency at different stages and it's nice to see us all moving along....feels like at a snail's pace...but moving along at any pace is good.
Last week we went to our Ethiopian church. I volunteered in the toddler class as usual and David sang songs to all the classes. Pastor prayed feverishly over a picture of our referral in hopes of good news very soon and that should she be our child, that she would do great things when she gets older and gives back to her community back in Addis Ababa. I thought that was so beautiful.
And last night, we were privileged to have Mesfin and his family over for dinner. If you recall, they are our new friends at the church. What a lovely family. We had wonderful conversation throughout the night about many things. Fascinating to get to know people and their lives which have been so different than how I grew up.
My friend Shere' from So. Cal who has been waiting for 2 1/2 years for her daughter from Vietnam is on the plane at the moment to finally hold her daughter in her arms for the first time and bring her home. That is a long process. Another gal at our agency (Leah) is hoping to pass court today for the 3rd try .... and I wait for my news.
That's it for now.......
