Update on the Wait!

I got a call today from Anna at our Adoption agency and she said they have been following up with the orphanage every day to find the family member needed to get to court. They have been unable to get into direct contact with him but found out he has been out of the region probably due to getting work. I am sure it was a hard decision as he needs to provide for his family. He has been cooperative and was even in Addis Ababa on May 20th, for our 1st court date, so this is a great hardship, I am sure, for him to make ANOTHER 2 day journey to Addis. Please pray that he will be able to be contacted and found and able to make it to the courts without his family being under hardship with him leaving for a couple of more days. It just hit me that I am so self centered thinking WHY isn't he going?here I sit in my nice home with plenty of food, air-conditioning and I am whining while this poor man is struggling to put food on the table for his AND he had to relinquish a tiny family member. My heart is going out to him. May God forgive me for my selfishness. Every time I call Mike at work he thinks I am calling with good news, poor guy, he has to listen to me carry on, he is soooo calming for me. I love him more than words can say. Who would have thought he would be telling me to be patient. lol
