Court Date Re-scheduled :-(

Here is the email we just received from our Program Director:

Dear Families-

I am disappointed to have to be sending this news, but due to two federal holidays falling in the same week, your new court date will be May 12th. Officials at court were not able to process anyone’s case. We will do everything on our part to have you travel as quickly as possible after this court date.


Duni Zenaye
Africa Program Director

We also received this update about why it took so long to get any information:
In an effort to conserve energy there have been power outages in Addis Ababa, where all power is turned off for certain periods of time. Due to this, communication with Duni while she is in Ethiopia has been very challenging. Emails and even phone calls have become very limited. Because of this, we are asking families to please be patient and understanding knowing that we are trying to do all that we can to relay important information.

I cannot even put into words how I am feeling right now....

I've been on pins and needles all day for you and have sure been praying for you and for this court date. I'm so sorry for things having to be rescheduled. How very disappointing for you.:-( Only the Lord knows the reason why there needed to be this delay, maybe even just so that more people will be praying for little Nathaniel right now.
ARG!!!!! That yucky "False Labor!" Nothing like being sent home from the hospital for another week of waiting!
Praying for you guys!
Love, Sandi Mortinson

I would call you right now, but it would not be good scene. Just know I am right there with you friend and I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL. You are not alone and we will get there and get our kids together and hopefully will see God's hand in even this delay.
