Tonight as we sleep a judge in Ethiopia will decide if Isaiah will officially become our son. We desperately need your prayers. Many families from our agency have not passed court this week, and at this time they don't even know why they didn't pass. As a friend reminded us, adoption is a spiritual battlefield. Let's go before the only One who is able and willing to work on our behalf. Please also keep praying for all the families who heard disappointing news this week and all those who are still waiting to get their children home.

The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; He turns it wherever He will.
Proverbs 21:1
A father of the fatherless and a judge for the widows, is God in His holy habitation. God makes a home for the lonely.
Psalm 68: 5,6a


  1. Praying for you! I found your blog from Meredith. We're another AGCI family in NC. We're just beginning the process though... Praying, praying, praying for you guys!!!

    PS - our blog is private, but I'd be more than happy to send you an invite if you'd like one :-)

  2. Praying for you. Court for us was last night, and we passed along with one other family... So there is hope. But 24 hours ago, I would have said I didn't think we would pass.

  3. You are so right about this being a spiritual battle. Praying so hard you slay that last paper dragon tonight!

  4. I'm praying and believing that God is going to bring Isaiah home to us.
