Though we got some tough news this week about our estimated travel date, we continue to hope against hope that God will part the seas from here to Ethiopia for us to bring #McAffryA home!
Senator Lamar Alexander’s office has been working on our case doing everything they can to expedite our paperwork. Though they told us the official word was that nothing could be done, we completed the first step of our process weeks faster than expected. That was nothing short of an act of God.
We are continuing to move forward in this journey trusting that no matter what official agencies and governmental organizations are saying, that God is the one in charge of this process and it will all happen in His good time.
We have #McAffryA’s blanket ready, most of his wardrobe prepared, and now we just need to get his room set up. Finishing up our paperwork feels just like the last few weeks of pregnancy. We’ve signed up for training classes to learn about sensory disorders and parenting a traumatized child. I’m in full on nesting phase.
We have his pictures all over our house and the kids talk about him all the time. It feels like the most natural thing in the world for us to becoming a family of five like this.
Thank you to all who continue to ask about our adoption and who continue to pray with us. Please pray for God to split the seas so we can walk right through!
