A bump in our road

We did not pass court today. Apparently there was a document missing in our file and time wasn't calculated correctly to have the work in. The Orphanage got the missing paperwork in on the right day, but not in time for the hearing. The court rescheduled us for October 6 :( AAI is trying to push for Rahel and another child to get through court sooner.

We need your faith and prayers.

Little Rahel, my arms ache to hold you. I am writing this with a lump in my throat but hope isn't gone. My patience is something I get to work on even harder now. It's also a time to grow closer to my Savior. Working on our house is no excuse for my negligence. More time to prepare for travel is also a good thing. I'm a little freaked out right now about staying in Ethiopia even though it's been a life dream to go, so more preparation is good.
Hopefully some better news next time.
