New April Number!!!

We just got an email with our APRIL official waitlist number!!!

It was really neat because I was sitting down to spend some time in prayer and in the Word. I literally had just prayed that God would surprise us with being one number lower that we thought on the waitlist. (We thought we were at #45.)

I promise, not two seconds after I prayed that, I heard my phone beep that I had a new email. When I checked it, I saw that it was an email from our AGCI case worker, K. I knew this was the email telling us our new April number!

I read through the email, and got TEARS in my eyes when I saw this...


#44!!!!!!!!

We are officially #44 on the waitlist for Caroline Faith! One number lower than we thought! EXACTLY what I had just prayed!!! Thank You, Jesus!!! What a precious blessing!

And if ya'll remember from last month, God gave us an amazing answered prayer in regard to our March number! So thankful for these fun blessings that He's given us along the way! It really helps to lift our spirits and give us JOY in the wait!

So, I think I am going to start praying for the 30's for May!!!

"In God we have boasted all day long, and we will give thanks to Your name forever!" Psalm 44:8

That is awesome, Alison! I have been praying for about a week that we would get a surprise and be in the twenties for our sibling number and we are 29 this month. Yay for movement! Praying there are lots of referrals in April.
