Referral Update

Weekly referral update: 2 referrals placed, 10 families past court, and 6 families traveling this week to pick up their children. Slow, but steady progress.

Almost every night Caroline wants me to pray for her "Africa kids" (we've been working with her on getting away from this term and calling them our kids in Ethiopia or your baby sister-kind of hard when we don't really know who we're praying for). Anyway, I asked her what she wanted to pray for and she said, "that they would get here soon". I told her that it would still be a long time and she said, "it's already been a long time" (we told them about adopting last November, so that is a long time for a 3 year old). So, we prayed that they would come home in God's perfect time. When we were done, she said, "so will they come the next day after this day"? (meaning tomorrow-patience is not one of her strong points). Not tomorrow, but sooner than later, we hope.
