Negative recommendation letter número dos

Yes friends, you read that right. Haha!


MOWA issued us another negative recommendation letter because we didn’t have a certain form in our file. An original form that has never been requested before, but is now required as part of their new processes and procedures.


Our file looked great! It’s just that form that they now need.


The good news is, that original form with all original signatures is in the office in Ethiopia and Mr. F will be taking it to court tomorrow.


And now, for the bad news:


It will still take a few days for the head of MOWA to review the document so that our positive recommendation letter can be issued. Then, it will be at least a day or two before court will give us our court date.


They should review our file and give us our letter the same day. So at least we won’t have to wait days before we get the letter (hopefully).


Best case scenario, we’re looking at getting an official court date sometime late next week.


Worst case scenario, it could still be another 2 weeks.


We’ll know more tomorrow when we find out what “court date” MOWA is given to review our file.


At this point, I don’t think we’ll be traveling much at all with the Clarks.


Right now, we’re looking at a court date the first or second week of November.




It has been 8 ½ months since we first saw our girls face. It’s been almost a month since she found out who we were and that we were coming for her.


This. Is. HARD.


I don't want to stop going. I want to keep singing no matter what comes against us. 


Right now, I still am, but it feels like it’s more of a whisper or a hum.


He is still good. And He still has me.


But, gosh, this keeps getting harder...




“Still my soul will sing Your praise unending….


One more week may not seem like a long time, but when you’ve heard “should be next week” for 6-7 weeks now, it gets kind of difficult to make it through each day.


But guys, we’re in no way giving up.


Not on her.


And definitely not on Him.


Still, we’d love to continue to receive your prayers. Lord knows our hearts could use them.


And thank you, for fighting this battle alongside us. You are appreciated more than words could say.  ❤️

(Oh, and please forgive me if I burst into tears at random moments. I try to avoid it, but sometimes a thought comes into my head and it forces those tears out. Haha! I’m definitely appreciating the fact that my office is in the back corner of the building on days like this.)
