First # of 2011!!!

Okay, so NEXT post will be about Christmas ;)  This was more important!

Just got an email from our case worker with our January number (for those of you also on the waitlist with our agency, it is a call month they are just sending out emails first so we don't have to wait for our call to know where we sit) and I was actually SURPRISED for once!  Because our agency's listserv keeps pretty close tabs on where families are on the list, it takes a lot to surprise us.  But not everyone on the waitlist checks in on the listserv, so there is always the chance we can be off a little.  So is the case this time around =)  {Unless I missed some huge news, which in case someone please correct me!}

We are THRILLED to announce we are now my FAVORITE number {except in this case 1 would be my TRUE favorite}, the most PERFECT number....

WOOHOO!!!  Of course, I thought we would be celebrating our referral by now.  But I guess the ONE thing you can expect in International adoption is the UNexpected!!!

One quick prayer request though!  My friend Niki leaves for Ethiopia for her son's court date on the 15th, and we would really love some PRAYER that Lord willing we would receive our referral by then.  If that was the case Niki could love on our little sweetie for us, hand deliver her care package, and take lots of picture for us =)
