my heart breaks

One boy passed court and one did not.

I can't stop crying...

We have another court date next week Wednesday. His dad did not show up for court and the court wouldn't let another relative relinquish him. So now this relative has to travel back 10 hours to the town and see the police to get a report stating the dad disappeared and travel back to Addis for next Wednesday's court date.

This is the hardest journey I have ever been on.

oh friend - continuing to pray. How hard to be at a distance. Praying you feel the nearness of God today and praying He will bring comfort to your hearts and a miracle for these boys to BOTH be released soon!

Don't lose hope.....God is good-- ALL THE TIME!! Both boys will be home with you before you know it....perhaps not in your timing, but more importantly-- God knows it ALL and he has a plan that is better than ours. Don't lose HOPE! Hang in there!! We are praying for your family!!!
