Almost there....


Wednesday. Wednesday is the day we go into court (in Ethiopia) and will then hopefully, officially and legally have a son. We are starting to get REALLY nervous! I have no doubt that the Lord is in control and that whether it happens on Wednesday or not, Malak will come home to us...it is more just that I am anxious to be with him...the sooner the better! Everything within me longs to love him up close rather than from afar.
So I am just asking that anyone who has been following our journey would PRAY FOR US. Pray for the courts, pray for the judges and those who will represent us in court, pray that our paperwork is exactly how it needs to be and that all just goes as it should! Since Ethiopia is 7 or 8 hours ahead of us, we will be praying like crazy on Tuesday night. Want to join in?? Pleeeease!! TUESDAY.

Tara, my dearest, you are a little late with this request. I've already had my Ladies' Bible Class praying for Malak to come home soon for weeks. And of course I've been praying for that since you first decided to adopt. But I promise to step it up from now till the wee hours of Wednesday morning.

i read your blog daily, but have never posted. my daughter was in the same hogar as Shiloh and I found you on Jenn's blog. I have been praying for your family and will be doing extra hard on Tuesday! The wait is hard, but so worth it when he is placed in your arms.


Looking forward to good news soon!

Thinking of you for sure! I'm sure everything will be GREAT! Hang in there!

On another note, is it just me? I can't see the comments, the text color is too dark against the background color. Strange, right?

Erica said...

We are absolutely going to be praying!! I'm so excited for you I can hardly handle it! Malak your mama is coming!!!

Amy said...

I will be joining you most certainly. Maybe we could hang out in our car after The Queen and have some prayers for you.... Pretty sure Josh will have to lead that one as I am tearing up just typing it. GOSH why am I so emotional?

me breaking into song:
I get so emotional baby...Everytime I think of you-ou-ou. I get so emotional baby....ain't it shocking what.. Love can do..Ain't it shocking what love can do....

I am thinking the above Whitney Houston song would be a perfect song to apply towards your Intoducing Malak to the world photo collage video.
Think about it. =)
