Submitted to Court!

We were SO THANKFUL to find out that we got to submitted to court last Thursday, June 6, 2013!!!  This is a huge step closer to going to Ethiopia to meet our sweet girl! :)  Now, we just wait on court dates from the Ethiopian courts to see when we can travel!  We are HOPING and PRAYING to get a court date before the courts close for the rainy season in Ethiopia (which is usually late summer)!  We would so appreciate your prayers!!!

Last night we were in the car, and saw this in the sky...

a BEAUTIFUL double rainbow!!!  

You could see it stretching across the entire sky!  What an amazing sign of God's promise!!!  I am trying not to sit by my phone waiting on our case worker to call with a court date, but instead just trust HIM!!!  Oh my, I am so ready to not be waiting on any phone calls! :) :) :)

God is so good, and He has worked out every detail so perfectly!  I know that He has already picked out the day that we will meet our daughter and hold her for the first time!  I can't wait!!!  I keep telling Jody that I just can't wait to feel her in my arms!  Ahhhh!  Praying!!!

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”
Genesis 9:16
