Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land" Proverbs 25:25
I was feeling severely under the weather today and was home from work. My work cell does not get good reception in our house - the phone rang once and went to voice mail. I looked at the number and didn't recognize it. They left a voice mail.
I listened to the voice mail and it was our adoption coordinator. She asked that I give her a call. I thought it was strange... she didn't say why she wanted me to call her.
So, I called her back. WE HAVE A COURT DATE!!! I nearly fell off the front porch (I get good reception on the front porch :) Our court date is 28Sept2010!!! We will hopefully be Sara's official parents on that date!!! I'm teary-eyed just typing this! The last thing I expected today was a phone call regarding our court date! What a WONDERFUL surprise.
So, now we know. The bad thing is, this week is a terrible week for me to be out of work. We are having an audit that week that was scheduled months ago. It will start the 27th and end Oct 1st. I will be gone the entire time. I had prepared my boss for this possibility, but really never expected to be in Ethiopia the ONE week I am truly needed at work. Well, I had said all along that this comes first... whenever it comes. This allows me to live up to that statement. And of-course, this DOES come first. I am SO very excited that we have a court date!!! Sara should be home with us for Thanksgiving!!!
I am so thankful to God for giving us this daughter!!!
The countdown is on!!!
