I've just felt the need to worship God all day. I feel like He's answered our prayers for success already, that MOWA has gotten our letter to the court, that their father is in Addis, and that it's going to be a day of great rejoicing tomorrow. Nonetheless, I will be continuing to fast until I receive word, and praying throughout the night for God to hold back any forces that stand against our victory and bringing home our children asap.
Here's the timeline as best I can tell.

Assuming court is in session between 8am and 4pm, and it's 1:00 in the morning now, then from 11:00pm tonight until 7:00am in the morning Central Standard time, we could be before the court with our proxy.

Our agency will call as soon as they can to let us know. I will then post as quickly as possible here on the blog to let you know the results. When we pass court, my post will include all the pictures we have of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We're ready to watch you move God! Show your glory in Ethiopia!!!!


  1. pray, pray, praying for you!!!! You will never know how much God has used you in our life - I pray that you will be blessed mightily tonight with a smooth and easy transition from 'waiting on court' to 'waiting to TRAVEL!!!!'

  2. Hi Root Family!
    I just found your blog from the Reed family blog and wanted to let you know that I am joining with you and so many others in prayer for a successful court date tonight for your two beautiful ET children.
    Hugs and prayers,
