Oh so close...

We received Zadie's post court paperwork today!! We now have her new birth certificate, the court decree stating that she is legally ours, and a copy of her Ethiopian passport! We have waited 18 LONG months for these documents as this is the final stage of our adoption. All that is left is for said paperwork to be submitted to Embassy (this will happen on Thursday the 20th) and then TRAVEL to bring her HOME! We have already purchased tickets on faith to leave on Friday, January 28th. We will not know if we are confirmed to travel on these dates until Monday. We need the Embassy to go over our paperwork and take the minimum 48 hours to confirm us for an interview on Feb. 2nd to be able to leave next Friday. We have seen over and over again how prayers work and what a mighty tool they are. I know how often we say we'll be praying over something or for something and how little that actually happens when it comes right down to it. I am so guilty of this myself. But oh how I've learned the power of prayer through this adoption journey...actually I've seen how God has used this journey to not only bless us with a daughter but to bless us spiritually as well. We have been stretched and have grown so much in our daily walk with our heavenly Father and we are oh so thankful for this journey...ALL of it...the good times and the long, drawn out times that strengthened our faith and brought us to or knees so often. We know how powerful prayer is and we ask you to pray with us now for a quick Embassy appointment confirmation, for peace for our boys during this transition, travel mercies, Zadie's health, and most importantly for God's will to be done and for Him alone to receive all the glory. You'll never know how much we appreciate your prayers...the long ones and the quick ones! Praising God that we are oh so close...

"And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."
Matthew 21:22

We will be praying. I am so excited to see your blog. We enjoyed meeting y'all at T4A and I was wondering just the other day if you were home yet. Blessings!
