WE HAVE IT! The GREATEST Woudneh in the WHOLE world sent a worker bee (whoever you are, thank you) to the region where my son lived. He was able to get his dad’s death certificate! As sad as it is for Abinet, his mom, and siblings in the death of his father, we can now go and get him.
It is now being translated into English and then will be scanned to our agency. Once the agency has it, they will send it to the attorney. Then, once the attorney has it, it is off to immigration (again).
Once they approve us, they send the approval to the Embassy in Ethiopia.
Once they send it there, we get an Embassy appointment.
Once we get the appointment WE FLY TO ETHIOPIA TO BRING OUR SON HOME!
Only God could have orchestrated this. He allowed us to meet and adopt our son in Oct. 2010. We should’ve had him home by Dec 2010, but God had other plans. He had to clean out a very cluttered room of my heart. It has taken a year, but I can say that the room that he cleaned is clutter-free and now I’m going to hold my son again. He did this, He delayed us, He did so so I would re-learn to love my daughter. I fell in love with her, by accident. Fixing her hair.
I’m seriously going to sniff his hair right off his head!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Christmas will take on a whole extra layer of goodness this year. My baby will be home by the holidays. I can’t even imagine seeing his face on Christmas morning. Teaching him about the true meaning and about Jesus. What a privilege.
