New January Number!!!

I just got this in an email...


our new January number!!! We are now officially on the AGCI girl waitlist at #62!!!


I just LOVE #62!!! Of course, we were hoping to be in the 50's this month, but there has been a little bit of a slow-down in referrals over the holidays (which we kind of expected).

But this is why I was SO EXCITED to find out that we are #62, because on our countdown wall at home, we are at...


#64! So that means, we have really moved down 2 more spots that we didn't even know about!! YAY!! That is always a very welcome surprise!!

I can't wait until the kids get home from school, so I can tell them about our new January number!! And I always let them take turns taking down numbers on the countdown wall, so I'll let them take down #64 and #63 to get us to...


#62!!! Every month we are getting closer and closer to Caroline Faith, and I just love it!!

"Trust in Him at all times, O people, pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge." Psalm 62:8

Alison,
There should be a LOT of movement later this month and next month....Hold tight. 8 kids came home in the past couple of weeks 2 more next week, and we're hoping for 7 more the following week...pray for "clearance" from the embassy for the 7 families waiting to pick up kiddos....

Hey friend! I would love to hear how you made the super cute countdown....how did you get the cute cutouts (surely you didn't hand cut them all?) of Africa? How did you stamp on the super cute numbers? Are these way too many questions?

ALso, we are thinking of starting an adoption growth group at our church..would love to hear how you are going about that.

Love seeing that number decrease!! It won't be long until you see sweet Caroline :)

Kelly said...

Oh, how I wish we had numbers to help us track how close we are! I loved your last two posts on praying for Caroline Faith and the peace that follows. She IS your daughter and the Lord is using you to change her life!

Abby and Pete said...
