Quote of the Day

"Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out."

~ JAMES B. CONANT

Stick your neck out for God today and see what progress He'll do through you!

For me, I gotta do some apologizing to some folks this morning before I can even think about that. For me, it's so easy for me to get boxed into my own little world and get "offended" by someone when they honestly weren't trying to cause any issues or pain...Satan just loves to stick that knife in and turn it in the wound to make you feel justified for your reasoning, thoughts, feelings... the only wounds I should focus on are the ones in Christ's side, hands, and feet.

On the adoption front, we're still waiting for our monthly update call to see where we are "officially" on the lists. Whatever those #'s are, I think we're 3 less than that on the girls and boys lists. So, my best guess for the offical #'s are #10 boys and #19 girls ... let's see what Julie says ... hopefully we'll know today ... otherwise, it'll be early next week.

Have a GREAT day!

None of us have "officially" accepted yet because we're in the paperwork frenzy. So, most likely the #'s that you get won't be accurate. But, I know for sure with referrals given this week that you moved 3 spots on both lists - that's some good movement!!

Hey you guys! It's been a while. It's awesome that you guys are getting so close! Speaking of that, I believe we are going to switch to AGCI. Big move but looks like the right one for our family. I wanted your input on the AGCI wait time whenever you get a chance. God bless!

I think she called around 3:30 cst but I had laid down with Jackson and of course fell asleep and missed my call! oh well I didn't really have any questions to ask. she said officially 15 but that they have had some referrals this week and to watch for the bi-weekly next week. Also that 30 families have/are traveling from the last week in dec to first week in feb!

man, she was pretty informative for leaving a voicemail!
