Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Psalm 82:3

Today was a great day as we finally turned in our dossier.  We felt a sense of relief as we handed over 6 months worth of paperwork to our case worker.

It feels good to have this step done, but we know the hard part of waiting is now upon us.  The approximate wait time for a referral is still 6-12 months from the time our dossier reaches Ethiopia.  We now just continue to pray for patience and rest in the knowledge that God has a child in mind for us already.  We pray for that child's health and development and cannot wait to meet him or her!
