Dill Family Adoption

Wednesday, April 13, 2011


We got the e-mail yesterday from AGCI with our official wait-list numbers.  We are currently #77 on the girls list and #56 on the boys list!  We are so excited to see the movement, especially after the March 8th deadline by the Ethiopian government concerning the proposed slow-down of international adoptions.  Even though there has been no official word/resolution from the Ethiopian or US government concerning the proposal, it is SO encouraging to have court dates and referrals still happening!

It seems like we've been waiting FOREVER, but it has really only been two and a half months.  We started at #98 on the girls and #74 on the boys, so in just two and a half months we have moved almost 20 spots on both lists.  That's pretty good!  It is always hard when you are in the "wait" mode, but God's timing is perfect and we will trust in Him to renew our strength.

As Easter is approaching, how thankful we are for the sacrifice Christ made on the cross for our sins!  Having traveled to Israel in March, and walking in the footsteps of Christ, our faith has been brought into a 3-dimensional understanding.   Everything has a different perspective to it now.  Knowing how Christ suffered for ME brings me to my knees.  Thank you, Lord Jesus!  May the realization of who you are and who you are becoming in Christ ring anew for you this Easter season.

In Him,
