The Final Chapter

Today we heard from the US Embassy that Bek's birthparent interview will happen next Thursday at 7:30 a.m. in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia {11:30 p.m. Wednesday central time}.  We are beside ourselves with excitement at this news!  Typically, families clear immediately after the interview {and, in this case, we are praying that we are "typical"}. 

{Can't wait to peer into those big, beautiful eyes again!}

Here are four specific ways to pray for us on what could very well be the final chapter in this amazing love story that God has authored:

1. That our agency is able to get Bek's grandmother {who will be interviewed} to her appointment on time.  If she misses the appointment, it could set us back another couple of weeks.
2. That Bek's grandmother is able to answer all of their questions and that she is filled with peace during the interview.
3. That the Embassy clears us immediately following the interview.
4. That an anonymous donor pays for our plane tickets to Ethiopia. {HA!  Kidding, kidding...(kind of) ;)}

Oh, friends...thank you so much.  For your prayers, for your support, for your kind words, and just for reading our little blog.  We have been in this process for so long that it truly feels like it's time for the next volume in this story of our lives.

Love to you all,

P.S. Coming soon...the "Cocooning in the Chase House" post...


  1. Yay Yay YAY! I've been waiting for a post like this! So glad things are moving, Jen!

  2. Yes, the night owl will be praying all over the 11:00 hour and some, so that the next day we can get the clearance news!!!!!! Love you and am so grateful for your Godly example of patience, courage, and persistance. You are such an encouragement to me. Bring home Bek!
