More Praises!!!

Today we found out a few pieces of info that are very exciting! First of all my sister and brother-in-law are now also on the wait list!!! (For those of you who didn't know, they are also adopting from Ethiopia, same orphanage, etc.) Their first choice is a sibling group, and they are #11 on that list, and then they are also on the boy(#18) and girl(#28) individual lists!!! We are really hoping God will bless us with the opportunity to travel together to Ethiopia to bring back our children!!! So that was praise #1 for today!
#2 is that our bi-weekly email came today from our agency! There were up to 4 boy referrals made in the last two weeks, so our new number may be as low as 14!!!! Thank you Lord!!! We also found out that as of late, wait list to referral time is taking 5-6 months, rather than 6-8 months! So that means we should be receiving pictures and info of our son by May or June!!! Yahoo!!! We'll have our new official number the first week of February, we'll keep you posted! Thanks so much for all of your prayers and support!
"Commit to the LORD whatever you do,
and your plans will succeed."

You guys will be such wonderful parents! My thoughts and prayers are with you...I can't wait until you both join "the club" of being a mom and dad because it is the biggest blessing ever! Much love!

Hey Cori-

It'd be fun to get together some time soon. I haven't talked with anyone really lately and feel very much out of the loop! I am off next Wednesday so maybe we could go do coffee that day if you don't have to work? Or do something Tuesday night? I am also in town and not on call this upcoming weekend too. Just let me know and it'd be wonderful to catch up with you as well. Sounds like your lives have been FULL of changes and upcoming blessings:) Hopefully we'll see each other soon.
