Unfortunately, yesterday we received an email from our agency reporting to us that Ethiopia is tightening their policies for international adoptions. Basically, the time frame from paperwork completion to referral is the same, but the time from referral to travel will increase. Previously they have said 2-4 months from referral to travel, now they are vague and simply saying it will be more than this. Please, please be praying with us, that God would intervene and we would still be able to get our son in the shortest time possible. We are SO excited to bring him home! With this extended time line, we are trying to be optimistic, and we're hoping we'll have our baby before Christmas 2009. That would be THE BEST Christmas gift EVER!!! Thanks for all your prayers!
