We are officially "waiting"....wait, I think we have been waiting, but now it's official.  What?

Our papers have officially been sent to Ethiopia as of yesterday!  So our status is officially "waiting for referral!"  WOW!  Now we don't hear anything until we get a  call from Bethany saying "We have a referral for you!"

Wait time is a huge guessing game...likely 6-24 months.  So now we need your prayers as we wait.  Pray for patience for us and for health and provisions for our future children and their caregivers.  Pray for God to prepare the hearts of Abigail and Benjamin to be amazing siblings to these precious children.  Pray for Chad and I to be prepared for the challenges (and joys!) of parenting a multi-cultural family!

So yes, now we wait... but more importantly we pray, we prepare and we wait on the Lord!
