New July Number!!!

I was SO EXCITED to get an email today from K, our AGCI case worker, with our official July number!!!

We had stayed at #39 two months in a row! Not fun! So, needless to say, I was thrilled to see this as our new number...


#32!!!

Yep, we are now officially #32 on the AGCI girl waitlist for Ethiopia! YAY!!! We were so excited to have some good movement on the waitlist this month! It is always great to feel closer to Caroline Faith, and every spot we move represents another precious child who has been matched with their forever family! Love it!!!

The Lord has given me such peace and joy in the wait lately, and I am so thankful! I am sure that there will be some tough days ahead, but right now, we are just resting in His timing and His faithfulness! We know our daughter is in HIS hands...and we trust Him completely!

So, we have now been in the 30's for three months in a row. I definitely think that is long enough! :) Praying for the 20's for August!!!

But I wouldn't be too sad to just skip right over the 20's and go right on to the TEENS!!! :)

"Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!" Psalm 32:11

That is a great number:) YOu all are moving right along. What color shirt would your daughter prefer?? And then I can email you some fabrics that would go with that shirt.

20s are SO close! And think about how close that sounds to Caroline Faith. I like that you mentioned that each number that goes down represents on baby going to their forever family- that's beautiful to think about! Praying for a low number next month.

Whoo-hoo! Wasn't it just awesome to be surprised with LOWER than expected numbers this month?! We're getting closer... maybe we'll get to be travel buddies. : )
