Since our return from Ethiopia 8 and a half weeks ago I've tried to ready the house for the kids and prepare their room. I've gotten a lot of work done; including transforming a useless and messy unfinished basement into a cute play room. I told myself I didn't want to rush the job, because I didn't want to be sitting around broken hearted with nothing to do, just waiting for them to come home. I believed that God's timing is always perfect and that I'd get the amount of work done I needed each day so that when it was time to go back I would just be finishing up.
I need to kick up the pace, because we should be going back very soon. Our agency said to prepare to leave as early as the 23rd, but also be equally prepared to be waiting several more weeks. Peace continues to reign in our hearts, but joy is abounding as we know that our wait will soon be over.
Our file is at the US Embassy in Ethiopia and anxiously await their review. I'll keep you posted when we hear more.
