Counting Down!

Just wanted to update the process from here on until we bring home our little girl...FOREVER! :)  Cannot wait!!!

After we got submitted at the end of January, we heard from the Embassy about what they still needed to clear our file.  We will give them that last little piece (which is an interview) on February 27.  We are hoping that on that day, they will clear us to get her visa and bring her home.  When that happens, they will give us a date to go back to Ethiopia.  That can be anywhere from 2 days later to 2 weeks later.

We are SO excited to be one week away from hearing from the Embassy again...hopefully to tell us that the wait for our little girl is over.  We are so ready to hear her laughter in our house (in her house!) and have her little feet running around with the other kiddos.  Her siblings long to have her home.

We made a paper chain to countdown the days until we hear from the Embassy.  On each link, we have something that each of us wanted to pray for her as she comes home.  Every night when we tear off another one, we pray for the thing that is on that chain.

Here is a picture from tonight with our countdown chain!
Please pray that everything goes smoothly and that we are cleared next week and get to go THAT WEEK to get our little girl!!
