New August Official and Unofficial Waitlist Numbers!

                                     Baby boy (3 months - 12 months)

There is the official waitlist numbers that we receive from our AGCI (our agency), and then there is an "unofficial" list that is based on the number of referrals made. Most of the unofficial list is tracked through other adoptive family's receiving their child referrals!

So.....Unofficially we are NUMBER 8!!!!! Single digits baby! This means that we really could receive our referral call within the next 1-2 months! YAY!!!!!!!

It's kinda like being pregnant for two years straight......

Yes, my belly may not be any bigger and I haven't had complaints of morning sickness but I definitely feel like we have been pregnant for a very long time. This November will be two years we have been waiting for our little one(s) from Ethiopia. We are getting close, very close but that doesn't mean that this road has been easy. Unlike pregnancy, we really don't know the due date. Will we get the call tomorrow or will it be another 4 months? Are we having one child or twins (siblings)? We wait patiently (or not so patiently) for our new child wait list numbers. Some months we are encouraged by the movement and others months we are discouraged. We watch all our friends get pregnant, have their baby and then by now possibly a second. This adoption journey has been filled with so many struggles as well as joys. We feel that it has truly strengthened our marriage and our faith. We are asking that all of you pray for us as our journey is really just beginning. Please pray specifically that we would receive our referral in the next 3 months!
