DTE 13 Months

We do love the number 13 here in our home. Because of this, I wish I could give you some beautiful story about our wait this month.

Truth is, it was really just another month. Aside from our social worker's update visit. Well, except referrals started up at a good clip again and for that, we give God praise!

We have officially broken the 50s on the unofficial list and we are sitting at around 48. Not bad at all! I hate this wait but it's much, much easier when you can actually see movement.  

Even better--our very close friends are #2 on the unofficial list for a boy right now and we CAN NOT WAIT for them to get "the call." What a day of celebration it will be indeed. And then we'll keep waiting til it's our day to celebrate.

Here's this month's verse:

Psalm 138:8 (ESV) "The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me;  your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.  Do not forsake the work of your hands."

We keep praying for the Lord to fulfill his purpose in us--for him to grow our family as he sees fit. Here are some pics of our chain:

Our 13 link chain--about to touch the bed. We'll have to get creative after that!

Here's hoping the next month has as many referrals as this one. If it keeps up, it could be sooner than we think. Not that soon though--we're talking two more years instead of 4:).

Happy 13 to you!
