New December Number!!

YAY!!!! We were so EXCITED to get our new official December waiting list number this afternoon...


#68 on the AGCI Ethiopia program GIRL waiting list!!!

And since we keep up with our agency's listserv, and we've seen more girl referrals go out this week, we know that we are unofficially...


#65!!! Yep, this is where we are on our countdown wall today!! Love it! Praising God for all these sweet children going HOME to their forever families!! And praising Him that every month we are getting closer and closer and closer to our Caroline Faith!!!

We pretty much have a PARTY here at our house every time we move down a number on the wait list! Gotta have FUN and JOY...even in the waiting!!! :)

"A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families..." Psalm 68:5-6

Yay for new numbers! So exciting to see movement! :) FYI - the word verification that I had to type in order to post this comment was "comet." Maybe it's a sign that the rest of your wait will just fly by.... :)

You've got to find fun ways to pass the wait...like give aways and raffles!! :) I am so glad that we decided to do a blog with this adoption!

LOVED your Christmas card, Alison! It is hanging with the others on a ribbon on my kitchen cabinet! I smile everytime I see it! Yours will be in the mail on Monday! I am so happy about your new number! Getting closer and closer to Caroline every day! We are just starting our home study paperwork! Let's catch up soon!
