2 Months & Counting!

Exactly TWO months of being on the waitlist and counting...


Right now, we are at #70 (unofficially) on the AGCI girl waitlist! I really can't believe that we have moved 23 spots in 2 months! I just pray that it continues to move this fast! Lots of children have been placed with families! YAY!!


Hopefully, not too many more months until we are here at #1!


A sweet friend made us a precious countdown calendar for Caroline Faith, and we LOVE it!! Carson asks me every. single. day. if we have moved a number yet! :)

I'll keep ya'll updated on our countdown to Caroline Faith! Can't wait to watch this long line of numbers get shorter and shorter...

"We WAIT in hope for the LORD; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name." Psalm 33:20-21

The waiting is sooooo hard, isn't it? And yet, when you look back and your sweet daughter is home, you'll see all that God did in your loves during this time. Really!!

What a super cute countdown!! When we're waiting for little Emersyn I might have to get some info from you to see if your friend could make one for us too! :)

I love your countdown. :) We are waiting on a little girl from Korea, but our numbers do not move the same... or else i would copy you! We are at the top of the list, but referrals from Korea are matched a number of ways, not just longest on the list. :( But our God knows when our little girls will be home. Take care! Elisabeth

Would love to pay your friend to make one of these for us as well when we get on the waitlist!!! I think this could be an awesome business for your friend for other adopting families!! Just an idea! (: It looks great!!!
