After we passed court in Ethiopia at the end of June, Amon’s paperwork was processed in our agency’s words “lightning fast.” And then we hit a road block. Every child submitted to the US Embassy has to have an updated medical report…just part of the process…and all of Ethiopia was out of one certain chemical needed to process blood work. Amon’s blood work was then sent to Nairobi, Kenya to be processed. This caused us to lose the time we had gained with his paperwork being processed so fast. That was hard. The wait was hard because we were ahead of the game and then we hit that road block.
But yesterday we got word that his blood work had finally been processed making his medical report complete…and his case was officially submitted to the US Embassy in Addis And even better…thanks to a crazy wonderful agency that works beyond hard for their families and their sweet kiddos, the US Embassy and to some awesome government officials Amon’s case is being expedited through embassy. The timeline goal is that we will be on our way to get him in just a few short weeks…crossing our fingers for 1-2 weeks. WOW, WOW, WOW! To even type that seems unreal…the end is in sight. Honestly I was super hesitant to even put it out there, but if you don’t mind, we covet your prayers for Amon and that everything will go smoothly from here on out. And that the intended expediting will be just that…fast and quick and in God’s perfect timing. Thank you so much for joining us on this incredibly, amazing journey. We’re almost there!
