July Numbers!!

Well, there has definitely been some movement in the list this month.  Last month our official numbers were #21 girl and #11 siblings.  We just got the call today that our new "official" numbers for July are #18 girl and #9 siblings.  What makes it so fun, though, is that our agency has a listserv; so when a family receives a referral, they can post their news and we are able to celebrate and pray with them!!  And.....there was a referral for a little girl this week!  Rejoicing with that family.  I just can't even imagine what I will be thinking or feeling when we get that CALL.  I know God knows the plans He has for us and I often wonder what those plans are.  Will we have a baby girl joining our family or will we have two little ones joining us? Whatever He has planned for us, I'm so excited.  It's getting closer!!  We are finishing up the girls' room this weekend.  I won't be doing anything to the baby room, though, until we get our referral.  We are so ready to love on our little one. 

Our busy month is finally coming to an end - tomorrow! Bill and I took a trip with H's band out to LA in the middle of June.  She had so much fun at Disneyland and playing in the Walt Disney Concert Hall.  That place is beautiful!  T1 went to many one day football camps at different universities.  They were all like a tryout.  He was so worn out but now has 3 scholarship offers for 2011.  His dream has come true.  All glory to God!  We are visiting the last of the three tomorrow and hope he will have enough information to make an informed choice.  We are so excited to see where God leads him and to see him use his talents to honor his Lord and Savior. 

We also received our approval letter from Illinois for our revised home study and then our approval letter from USCIS all in the same week!!!!!  There is a mistake on the USCIS form but I know God is in control and it will all work out.  Can't wait to see what God has planned!!
