I can’t believe it! I am so thrilled!
Last night Natalie wrote and said she’d be out of office and if a court date came through Mary would call. I said thanks.
This morning I stopped and asked Coffeedoc, “do you think that means that maybe she’ll call today? That was a different sort of email…” He said, “No, she just did that in case you email her again.” “Oh, ok, (sigh) I won’t get my hopes up.” Then I promptly tried to squoosh them down, once again.
So, this morning, after adoration, an 817 area code called my cell (it’s still working!). And it was Mary. Ok, my hopes zoomed up and I held my breath and she said “I have good news for you!” And I think my voice went up two octaves, “You do?” “Yes, you have a court date! March 31!”
Well, it was a lot of gabbling questions and chatter after that and now I am floating through the rest of my day! And this afternoon I go to meet a woman I hope will be my Amharic tutor. A great day. God is SO good, all the time!
So, I will beg for prayers for a successful court date. Please put us on your lists, the FBI list, and your prayer lists. We need to bring our daughter home.
