We got the email from our agency today letting us know that for the month of January we are officially number 55 on the boys wait list! This was one number lower than I had thought, so it was a welcomed surprise! Jude helped me flip over our countdown Africa's tonight and glue hearts on the backside, representing all the kiddos who were placed with their forever families this past month! As I see more hearts hanging on our wall as we turn over our numbers, it almost brings me to tears grasping the impact that every single heart truly represents a life that is rescued, a family who stepped out in faith, and a chance at a full, love-filled life for a orphan! Bring on more referrals for the month of January so we can see even more hearts and see an even lower number for Isa! We continue to trust with confidence that this is all playing out in God's perfect timing and that God is at work in Ethiopia right now, even as I type this, putting all the pieces of this puzzle together in how Isa will a part of our family!
