We've heard that there is a meeting of the committee scheduled for next week!!!  Please pray with us.  For Burundi and its people and especially for the children.  And for our family.  Oh how we would love to be matched.

So, I've been pretty quiet on here for the last couple of months and figured it was about time to post a quick update.

The election in Burundi came and went and the president was re-elected.  Our hope had been that things would calm down and the committee would meet again…

The committee.  There is a committee that comes together and matches families with children.  If they don't meet, no matches occur.  They haven't meet since before the election.

…but they still haven't met yet.  So we keep waiting and hoping that they will soon.  And if/when they meet that we will be one of the families that they match.

So we are still in a holding pattern.  Still waiting.  Shifting back and forth between feeling really hopeful and feeling as though the wait will never end.

And that's the best update I can give today.
