Prayer needed

We received this e-mail today from our agency. They are being very very cautious in writing this to us as a lot of times rumors can fly and they would not want to share any false information with us(another reason we love our agency). However, it does seem as if the Ethiopian government may be cutting the amount of adoptions it does SIGNIFICANTLY. Please pray...

We are writing to ask your family to join us in prayer for the Ministry of Women and Children’s Affairs (MOWA) regarding the number of cases they will be able to process each day. They have made statements that they desire to decrease the number of recommendation letters they write each day. We understand that because of these statements, the Court and MOWA are in the process of meeting to discuss and work out any potential changes or new processes regarding adoptions in Ethiopia. We want to blanket these meetings with prayer and ask you to come along side us in this.

We are sorry to be sending information to your family so late in the day but we wanted to communicate this request to you before the weekend. We know rumors and concerns can arise from any information being shared in the adoption community and our desire is to continue to primarily provide you with any confirmed information in a timely manner. Please rest assured we will continue to seek information on what is happening in the adoption process in Ethiopia and will share with you any new confirmed information we receive.

I just had a good conversation with God. He reminded me that He has it in His in hands. This doesn't make it easy or less painful. We once again place our trust in Him.

We're standing with you in prayer.

God is Sovereign. I'm leaning on that fact alone.
