New April 2012 Number!!!

We just got our email from our AGCI case worker, K, with our new April 2012 number...

#11!!!!!

Yep, as of right now, we are officially #11 on the AGCI girl wait list!

I have to admit that I was REALLY hoping for the Top Ten this month, but I am still happy to be at least one spot closer to our baby girl.  Movement has been very slow lately (meaning not many referrals going out), so I am just excited to still not be at #12! :)

If ya'll have been following our journey, then you know that there have been two months where our number has stayed the exact same!  So, needless to say, I am still really excited to move closer...even if it's just one spot!

And, as always, that one spot represents a precious child who was matched with their forever family, and that is always an AMAZING thing!!! 

I have been pretty emotional lately, and that seemed to get worse this afternoon when I found out that our beloved case worker, K, is taking another position within our adoption agency.  So, she will no longer be our case worker.  She is so precious, and I have grown attached to her over the past couple of years!  I am excited for this great opportunity for her, but sad that she will not be the one to give us "the call" for our baby girl! 

We will have a new case worker, M, and I am sure that we will love her!  But I am so thankful for our sweet K, and for all that she has done for us...listening to our concerns, answering our questions, handling our paperwork, encouraging us when we were discouraged, etc.  So, I am a little sad to tell her good-bye, as she has walked with us faithfully over the past 19+ months of waiting.  And so the emotional roller coaster continues! :)

Well, we have a BIG adoption journey anniversary coming up this week!!!  

Let the countdown begin...

"For the Lord is righteous, He loves justice; the upright will see His face." Psalm 11:7

OH, I feel like you are getting SOOO close!!:) And I was sad about "K" not being our case worker anymore, too. I had definitely pictured her making "the call" to us. Oh, well. At this point I don't care who calls us, really!! I just want my phone to ring!!:)
