New February Number!!!

Well, I got an email from our case worker yesterday afternoon with our official February number...


#60!!!

Yes, we are #60 on the official AGCI girl waitlist for Ethiopia! I will admit, I was really hoping to break out of the sixties this month. But, God has other plans, and I am trusting that His plans are way better than mine. Actually, I KNOW that His plans are way better than mine!!

God never promised us this adoption journey would be EASY or FAST. But, oh my goodness, the BLESSINGS throughout this journey have been AMAZING! He has plans for us during this waiting time, which is one of the things He showed me this weekend at the retreat.

"But for those who fear You, You have raised a banner...Save us and help us with Your right hand, that those You love may be delivered." Psalm 60:5,6

Yay for your new number! Yep, we have to trust that his timing is perfect. I bet if you look back on your life there were times when you wanted something sooner, and yet in hindsight you can see now how His timing was perfect. It is soooo good to know we can place our faith on such a loving God. Rejoicing with you today!!!

Glad to hear you are feeling better today! SIXTY! Every step closer counts! ;) Say, when you download the pics, would you mind terribly sending me the one of us? Via FB, email, whatever works easiest for you? That would be awesome! Thanks a bunch, girl! May the referrals pour in this month for all agencies!!!
