Another day, a new opportunity...

Every day I wake up and think, "is today the day I will see his face?" and every day I go to bed thinking "really God, not today either??" We were under the impression that at least one baby boy was being referred each week so when they told us we were #1 we just KNEW it would only be a day or so before we would see our son! Now it has been nearly 6 weeks at the #1 spot. A friend commented "there are rock bands who would love that status!" We are not a rock band and would like to be OFF the chart completely and on a plane to pick up our baby!! It is difficult to wait and not knowing what is going on makes it all the more difficult. Our case worker is out of the office until the 4th but we have been assured that the other Ethiopia case workers will handle our referral in her absence. I sure hope that is what happens because I can't imagine waiting for the 4th. Having said that, I said I couldn't wait until
Each day I think of a reason why it would be the PERFECT day to get the referral. It's amazing how many reasons I can invent.


  1. Praying for you as you wait!! I hope I will get to meet your little man when we are in ET from the 8th to the 14th!!! Can't wait to see your "we got the call" post!!!



  2. Praying for you~ We are #24 on the boy's list with AGCI. Cannot wait to hear all about your referral. I know it will be very soon.

  3. I am so happy that we will be able to follow along with the adoption saga! You are such a blessing to others and this blog will be just another avenue to share your message.

    Praying for your peace and patience while your still #1:) Can't wait to see that precious little boy's face!


  4. Nice to "meet" you. We are currently #18 for a boy and let me tell you - we are ALL soooo ready for you to get your referral. I have been talking with Angie for quite a few weeks now and just happened upon your blog.

    I have been praying for all the families at the front of the lists as I am hoping and praying that the wait lists move very fast in the coming weeks and months. I will definitely be praying for you :)


Why Wouldn't I?
