And He has done that today! We got our referral!!!
He is beautiful, absolutely beautiful. Because of Ethiopian law and our agreement with our agency (he's not legally ours until we pass through court in Ethiopia), all we can tell you is he is a stinkin' cute little guy. Remember how I called him "cutest boy in the world"? Well, he is!
You don't know how much I want to share his picture with you! But in his interest, we cannot. Soon though. Please pray that we receive a court date soon so that we can share him with the world. We will not be sharing details about his life and circumstances though. My life is an open book, but we feel like our son's should remain private. Thanks for not putting us on the spot. :)
Thank you for your faithful prayers and encouragement on this journey. It's not over....I think this wait to go get him will be the worst. We continue to covet your prayers as we now have a son on a different continent that we can't wait to get to. Oh how he is already loved!
What happens now? We wait (notice the theme...) for our hard copy referral to come in the mail. We then send in the official acceptance letter to our agency. The in-country representative requests a court date for us and we base our travel plans around that date.
God is SO very good! I can't believe I finally get to post that we got our referral!!
