New September 2012 Number!!!

 We got an email from an AGCI case worker this afternoon with our new waitlist number for September 2012...

#5!!!!!

This is what number we were thinking we were, so no big surprises this month!  Although, it was good to see that we are "officially" in the TOP FIVE!!!

We only moved one spot this month, but that is much better than none!  The three hardest months for me on this adoption journey have been the months that our number stayed the same, so I am always happy for any movement closer to our baby girl!  And that one spot of movement represent a precious little girl that was matched with her forever family!

It is so hard to believe that this is our THIRD September number to post here...

September 2010 #93, 
September 2011 #23,
September 2012 #5!

We are moving closer and praying that maybe October will be the month we see our sweet baby girl's face!  I think that all four families on the waitlist ahead of us are waiting on baby girls around 18 months or younger.  So, it just all depends on how many baby girls come into Hannah's Hope (our agency's transition home in Ethiopia) who are paperwork ready to be matched with a family!

God showed me these verses yesterday in Jesus Calling, and I have been clinging to them...

"I am still confident of this:  I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.  Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord."  
Psalm 27:13-14

Callie Grace, Caty and I were reading in their kids version of Jesus Calling last night, and it had the same Bible verses.  Callie Grace said, "Mommy, that is like saying the same thing twice...wait for the Lord, wait for the Lord."

I agreed, and told her that sometimes people God says things twice to really emphasize it...especially for people like Mommy who are having a hard time with it!  :)  I am so thankful for the way God continues to encourage us through His Word!

Thanks for walking and praying with us on this journey to our daughter in Ethiopia!  Praying for October!!!

"Listen to my words, LORD, consider my lament.  Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to You I pray."  
Psalm 5:1-2
