8 Months Ago Today......

......we entered the waitlist! And what a journey it has been! We started out at number.....

# 71 for girls.....

#44 for boys.....

and #40 for siblings.

So, in eight months we have moved 47 spots for girls, 29 spots for boys, and 30 spots for siblings.

I am also getting really pathetic. Since there have been several referrals over the last few days, I find myself checking our agency's yahoo group for more referral news all the time. I'll stick a load of laundry into the washing machine, check the listserv, make a phone call, check the listserv, clear the lunch dishes from the table, check the listserv, and so on. My mom always told me that a watched pot never boils, and I know that my constant checking is not going to speed things up, so I'm not sure what this current computer addiction is all about. Help! I'm starting to drive myself crazy! It's probably because my "pregnancy" has now lasted for about 14 months and my hormone levels are off the charts! I need to keep reminding myself:

"... they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." - Isaiah 40:31

and "...the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: Though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry." - Habakkuk 2:3

God is faithful, and He keeps His promises. Have a great weekend, everyone!!!


  1. Oh yes....the waiting gets harder..praying for you as you prepare to see FINALLY your little ones face.

  2. Can't wait to hear the great news of your referral! I hope it is very SOON!! :)
