Adoption Update..

Our agency has had several referrals in the last month! We hit the waiting list at #47 and in just a month we're now number 36!

Pretty fun! I never did "numbers" when we were in process with Silas but this time around the kids ask daily if our number has changed. Listening to Silas pray for his little sister is priceless, watching Olivia collect toys she's going to give her sister and the anticipation by the older kids melts my heart. They all know what to expect this time around and they can't wait.

Not that a number means much, everyone that is waiting with our agency is all lumped into one so it really doesn't lend much info on how long we'll be waiting or not. Its more just a fun gauge and gives the kids something to hold onto.

With that.....Here's to more referrals this month!

Great movement on the list!!! We, too, love the numbers. I guess it gives us something tangible to work with while waiting. : )
