Moving on Down!

We are moving closer to receiving our referral!  WOO-HOO!!!!!

January was an AWESOME month for our agency.  I stopped counting at 15 precious children being matched with their forever family.

There are still some ongoing court issues but I am hopeful that God will sustain each family in the wait.    Please keep praying Saints!

So...were do we stand?

From my count (unofficial, of course!)

We are # 7 in the girl line but # 3 in girls from 18-24 months! 

I am excited but using much (restraint and caution) in seeing what February has in store for us.  There have been 2 infant girls referred and we are only on the 4th day of the month. 

As we come close to our 8th month in the wait--we are thankful that God has continued to show his  mercy and love.  May we continue to rest in his assurance and provision.

It is our desire that this entire journey be pleasing to our Lord and that He alone will be glorified.  

Thank you for your continued love and support!

How exciting that you are almost at getting a referral!!
Have you joined the Houston Ethiopian Adoption Yahoo group? They just started it. I think you go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HoustonEthioAdopt/
to join.
We still have another eight or nine months of waiting before a referral, so it's always encouraging to see others progress!
