Adoption Update: March Waitlist Number

Hi fam and friends! Alrighty, here it is. Last month we were #18 on the waitlist.

Our March update is... we are still #18 on the waitlist.

Three months at #18. Five months with no referrals (little ones being matched with families).

With all of that said, we are joyful! We are thankful. No more sulking (well not as much ;-)).

Joyful because we know that God is in. control. We have seen him at work, we have seen him in every detail of our lives in the past, so we know that He still is. Mmm, it's comforting.

Thankful because we know that our agency is going to great lengths to make sure everything is being done the right way. Though they are approached by children's homes/orphanages and have referrals come across their desks, they do not just accept, partner with, or pass along, right away. They investigate, ask every question, collect every piece of paperwork, make sure everything is being done nothing but ethically, that each little's status is true, look out for the best of every single little one.

We are waiting. We are excited. We can't wait to meet our newest little one. But we sit back in God's timing. Whew. It can be tough, mainly because of the dramatically lengthened wait, but it's the place to be.

We are loving and enjoying each day with our little family and we are all looking forward to the day we are introduced to our new "baby girl"/little sister!!

{We hung these pics up seeeeveral months ago, last frame on the right, ready for our newest little :)}

Our rep said they are close to a referral, so we are praying they are able to match that sweet little one and more truly in need to follow. Thank you for praying with us! And walking with us!
