Today we found out that Holt's Embassy Date for 9/8 was canceled due to the Ethiopian New Year holiday. This means that the 15-20 families currently waiting to travel have all been pushed back on their travel dates. Some families fortunately found out today that they will be traveling for the 9/22 embassy date, which although we are sad it's not us, we are happy that more children will be coming home soon! We will "likely" be assigned an embassy date of October 6th... at least that's what we're hoping for at this point. Not the end of the world, but not quite what we anticipated. This whole process has been in God's hands, and this too is all part of the Plan. I'll be honest though, tonight I just feel frustrated and kind of depressed. And I think that's okay! Tomorrow is a new day :) Before we know it, she'll be home.
