A few hours later my phone rang. It was a Washington number. I only know one place in Washington. I tried not to panic but they haven't called me in months. Maybe she was just calling to check on me after I sent that email. Making sure I was going to be okay. I mean it was pretty ugly.
"Mandy, do you know why I am calling?"
"Umm yeah, no, maybe? Do I???"
"Yes! You have MOWA approval!!!"
After that we both just turned into blubbering tears and snot. And I honestly don't remember a single word she said.
Guys only hours after I posted how much I was struggling, we got the last approval we needed. This is God. He knew just when we were ready. When our hearts were ready.
What happens next? We get submitted to court on Monday. They could tell us a court date then or early in the week. There's a good chance we could be leaving in the next week or so for Ethiopia!!!
It's finally happening and it's your prayers that have helped us get here. I can't stop crying thinking about the love and support we have received. I will keep you posted when we get our court date! And don't stop the prayers. Please pray as we prepare to meet our son and for his heart. This is going to be incredibly difficult for him. Thank you tribe!
