Happy Half Birthday, Benaiah!

Today, Benaiah is 6 months-old! "Happy Birthday" to the little guy that we love and have never met!

It has been 6 1/2 weeks since we received our referral. We have not heard anything other than we will NOT be told when our court date is. At this point, we have to believe that something is in the works. The Ethiopian courts will be open for 3 more weeks before it closes for a 2 month break, and our African Program Coordinator is there in Ethiopia doing whatever she can to get as many of as through as possible.

Five families received referrals yesterday, and they were told that they have a small chance of getting through court before it closes. This is an encouraging thing for us to hear! We may be in one HUGE travel group!

Please, keep praying for our case to get through court SOON!
