In the Words of Marvin Gaye

What's going on?

I've been meaning to write. Really, I have.

There is so much to talk about. I still want to write about our first trip to Ethiopia before I start to forget things.

I still want to give you the official "What happens next" post because Lord knows, we still have some hoops to jump through.

I still plan to overload you with pictures of the most adorable boy in the world.

No, really....I have such good intentions.

But today? I'm just going to ask you to pray with me. We're now one month out from our court date and 3 1/2 weeks from the official decree.

We were supposed to be submitted to Embassy on Monday.

But of course something was missing. Specifically, a lab report.....

Then we got the optimistic news that the Embassy no longer only requires agencies to submit on a specific day of the week (Yay!) and that they would be trying to submit us again on Wednesday. (Yay again!)

But that wasn't true. Somewhere there was a miscommunication (Really? That's so unusual?!) and they actually DO have to submit on a specific date. Ours is Monday.

Monday is Memorial Day.

They are hoping they will be allowed to submit on Tuesday instead.

Does anyone else feel like they are listening to a broken record?

Cause I sure feel like I sound like one.

I still have a million things to do to get everything "ready" for Marvel's arrival.

I have a hundred-million things to do to get ready for leave from work.

But if they called me tomorrow? I would be on a plane.

No questions asked.

He has underwear and socks. Which is all that is really essential anyways =)

I am not really sure where my thoughts are going on this. I guess just to say I could really use some Aarons and Hurs right now.

Hoping for better news next week.

I just prayed, and will continue to do so.

I've said that I feel like a broken record before as well- but I assure you that YOU are NOT the one broken (or a record for the matter!) Today I feel sad and frustrated for you and Jeremiah, and I will keep praying and standing with/for you. Wish I lived close so we could get pedicures or something fun to take your mind off where things stand today.

P.S. I look forward to all your other posts about your ET trip =)
