Didn't pass

It was strange.

Paul and I both thought we would pass.

Not sure why... I mean, I thought I was prepared to not pass the first time -all things considered.

But when I checked my phone for emails today and started seeing "We passed!" and "She's ours!"
and I thought, "Wow! They are sending out news FAST today!" then I saw an email from Holt!

Suddenly, I thought it was possible!

Then I opened the email.

Unfortunately for us, the Ministry of Women's Affairs in Ethiopia did not have a letter to the court on time for our case.

Yeah, that's what I thought too... "WHAT?! They had 18 days to get that letter done and to the court!"

So... we are rescheduled for June 1st.

I do have a tiny bit of hope. The hope is that MOWA will send this letter over to the court and the court will just process our paperwork right away instead of waiting two weeks.

If not... we still wait.

This is yet another thing that just isn't fair, or right or orderly or organized in international adoption.


  1. I'm so so sorry Chrissy. And you're right, it doesn't make sense. I'm praying for you!

  2. Chrissy, I am praying for you and your family and of course your 3 babies waiting for you. My heart is heavy for you right now. Praying

  3. I was in your exact same shoes April 16th with the same reason for having to "reschedule". Unfortunatley, the missing MOWA letter is a very common event. Praying that June 1st is the special day for your family!

  4. Hang in there, Chrissy. I'm praying for you.

  5. It isn't fair, right or orderly, but it's WAY more orderly than domestic adoption!!!

    hang in there girl.

  6. I know how you feel, we are on our third court date! It is so heartbreaking! It hit me a lot harder the second time, tears were flowing and flowing! But the good news is that God has a plan!

  7. I'm soooo very sorry, Chrissy...it WILL happen...stay strong!
