This is the story of two little boys living in an orphanage in a far away place. Little did they know that they had a mommy & a daddy who loved them very, very much and were waiting until the day that they could go meet these little boys, hug them tight, and dress them in manly blue instead of girly pink.
Then one day, a day like all the other days before, the mommy woke up in the morning, and as she was accustomed to do each day, checked her email right away. You see, while the mommy was sound asleep in China, the hard-working people in America were awake doing all that they could help the mommy & daddy & the little boys be together. She had been waiting a long, long time to get this particular email, and today was the day: "Congratulations on your court date!"
The mommy went to tell the little boys' friend about this wonderful news. This is what they had to say:
The mommy, the daddy, and the friends were so thankful to God that the day was coming closer when they could go see the little boys that they had never met before but loved so much. The friends were even more excited to find out that maybe, just maybe the little boys might be able come home to play with them in June or July.
The mommy & daddy are also thankful to all their other friends in blog-world who have been praying for them all this time as they wait for their little boys to come home. If the friends want to pray for something specific, they can ask God to help the Ethiopian Ministry of Women's Affairs (MoWA) to provide a letter of approval for the judge before their court date on April 12th. If this letter does not reach the judge beforehand, it will be even longer before the little boys can come home to the mommy & daddy. And that is no fun at all!
