and Ben has been placed with another family that was waiting for a referral. Evidently, they requested him earlier this week and corporate just told our case worker. We are thrilled for Ben that he will get to be with his new forever family even earlier, thrilled for the family who will soon be his new family and yet sad at the same time. I held up so well talking with our social worker (who is an absolute doll) and then cried like a baby when I had to call and tell my husband.
We will pray about what direction to go, although I feel like we will continue filling out our paperwork for Ethopia. There are so many children there that need homes. We just want to follow God's will. Please say a prayer for our family tonight as we tell the kids.
