We were emailed the December update on November 29....we thought early was a good sign that December would be packed full of referrals....but it wasn't. We currently still sit at number 2
We were surprised that we didn't have a call this month. The previous couple months have had 6-7 referrals all in the first couple weeks of the month. But not December. Not sure why. Ethiopia celebrates christmas in January, so it isn't because of the holidays. There are still a few days left in the month, so maybe it still will be December. We are excited to get the call, but we still wait patiently and peacefully knowing that God is in control and is working all things for our good as those who love Him. We rest in the fact that He knows the exact child that will ours forever and the exact moment that we will see his or her face.
Thank you to those who are praying for us and for the health, care, and safety of our child. It means more than words can ever express to know that you support us and are praying for us. May God receive all the glory.
January update soon! Praying January would be a month of many children going home to their forever families.
