No number yet

Just got a call from our case worker and found out that we won't get our number on the waiting list until Monday. There were about 8 dossier submitted this week and to be fair, they need to review them all and give out waiting list numbers according to the order that they came in. They also need to check to see if any of the dossiers need updated work (resubmitting for any mistakes). On the positive note, ours does NOT need to be resubmitted, it looks like we made no mistakes. =)

So, we will wait until Monday. Isn't that great that so many families are following God's call to bring an orphan into their family? How cool that so many families are all waiting for children.

To keep me busy, I am reading a great book that a wonderful blogging friend mailed me. Thanks so much to Tonya for this book. I am being challenged as I read it and understand more about God's view on adoption. How sweet and thoughtful of you to send it my way. I look forward to passing it on to many friends when I am done.

I pray you understand that adoption is God's idea and by His grace we are adopted into His family.

Love, Mom


  1. Bummer but that is great news that yours doesn't need any updating. Still looking forward to seeing your numbers on Monday :)

  2. So glad that things are moving along so smoothly. I'm very excited for you.

  3. Cris, sorry I haven't posted many comments lately. I am SO excited about what God is doing in your lives and how He is working to bring about this adoption! It is great to hear how He has provided. You guys are doing an amazing job getting everything done. I know this next part will probably be hard - waiting and not doing! May God give you His grace to wait! I am excited for you guys and love hearing the progress.

  4. I'm looking forward to hearing where you all stand on the waiting list. Good job on hte "no mistakes." Sounds like you are doing what you can to be ready as soon as possible.

  5. I bet it is a good book. That IS cool that so many people turned in their dossier last weekend...waiting with you for a number too. It's exciting.
