An Embassy Tale

Sharing is caring!

And now, a fun story that will be written down in our adoption journal...

While we were in Washington, D.C for the 2:1 Conference, our Dossier paperwork was in the same city. I knew it was there and joked about wondering if they needed me to hand-deliver it somewhere to speed up the process. A day or two later, our GPS got us turned around due to an unexpected detour. We found ourselves driving on some random roads while the GPS recalculated very slowly. I was admiring the gorgeous houses and then I started noticing flags. Country flags. It dawned on me that we were driving through the embassies.

And because I'm sentimental, I typed in "Ethiopian Embassy" into the GPS.

Not only did we drive past it, but I got out and took a few photos. Because really, when am I ever going to be standing in front of the Ethiopian Embassy knowing that my paperwork is sitting inside at that very moment? Never. Once in a lifetime thing.

So, yeah, I'm the weird lady that got out and took pictures of the Ethiopian Embassy and the flag.

Also, the Lord made the flag unfurl in the wind just for me.

Oh, sweet child of mine, we are coming. Momma and Daddy are coming just as fast as we can. We love you.

I would have too. That is a completely appropriate mama thing to do.

I think it is a fun story to be able to tell to our child one day.

I love how God keeps giving us little things to keep our spirits high in this long journey. He is so in the details!
