March is getting EXCITING!

Thanks Cindy for the awesome update!!!

Today referrals began for the month of March.  The Mullins family received a referral for a 1 month baby girl.  The Bullingtons received a referral for a baby boy (I believe they were on the boy only list). And the Garner family received a referral- I know they received a referral for a girl - just not sure of the age.

So, here's the updated list (for "either" and "girl only")

1. Bayly – EITHER – dte 5/2/08

2. Precopia - EITHER - 5/2/08

3. (1) Taylor – girl only – 5/2/08

4. (2) Delfosse - girl only - 5/9/08

5. (3) Pickard - girl only - 5/9/08

6. (4) Bartley - girl only - 5/30/08

7. Bushre - EITHER - 5/30/08

8. (5) - But really # 1 in line for a toddler girl!!! - PORTILLA- GIRL ONLY- 6/13/08

9. (6) Foote - girl only- 6/13/08

10.(7) Redd - girl only - 6/13/08

Hi Kara,
Praise be to God for these three family matches. May God go before them to prepare the way.
I continue to pray for you and your family on the journey of adoption. How exciting to be getting so close!! God knows where Ava Joy is and her exact age and is moving heaven and earth to bring her home.
Love and hugs and prayers,
Debi
