Our dear friends the Slonigers are also adopting from Ethiopia. Truth be told they were (unbeknownst to them) instrumental in our adoption. Seeing their story begin kind of gave us a kick in the pants and watered a few seeds that were already planted.
They are with a different adoption agency and had been waiting on a referral for a super long time. They received one about a month ago for a beautiful (seriously, like THE most beautiful) baby boy.
And so both families (and our prayer warrior friends) have been praying that God would coordinate things so that we could both travel at the same time. Both of us plan to spend a few days at the front end of our trip working with Pastor Surafel and Hope for the Hopeless in Ethiopia.
I can’t help but wonder if all of our delays were perhaps for this reason? I know full well that God has a perfect plan and so I’m curious to see it revealed, whatever it may be.
