Onward Christian Soldiers

We heard that there are no little 5-6 year old girls for our family in the region of Valle del Cauca.  So our file is being sent back to Bogota.  We remain on the top of the very high pile of family files, which is good.  We will have another regional assignment soon, and then the customary 30-60 day wait for a referral.  I’ve had high hopes before, but I’m already seeing the very real possibility of only 5 stockings hung by the chimney with care AGAIN. 

God is still on the throne.  He still has our little girl picked out that is perfect for us…. and we are perfect for her.  His timing is also perfect.  (I keep telling myself that over and over.)

Minimal Minor News

The only adoption news lately is:

1.  I just bought the most darling pair of pink plaid Converse for Zaza.  Totally darling. (OK, I know.  Hurting news.)

2.  Our media drive had taken an upswing these past two weeks with several large donations and over $400 in sales on ebay this week!  Wooo Hooo!

3.  Matt continues to cook for Matt’s Meals with a Mission, where he goes to other people’s homes and cooks dinner for them.  How do you say thanks to an almost 18 year old kid who donates 75% of the money he earns to your adoption????  I can’t figure it out either.  We are humbled and blessed.  MMM has also earned over $500 so far!  Wooo Hooo!  THANKS, Matt!!!!

4.  I’ve missed the last two conference calls.  Lame, I realize.  I’ve been swamped with traveling for speaking because of my new book release, and I haven’t even called to make a “new information call” appointment.  THIS week it will happen!  I promise.

5.  Sad news:  we did find out that if we don’t get our referral call by Nov. 3rd, Zaza will spend yet another Christmas in Colombia…. while I cry again  putting the kids’ ornaments on the tree.  :o( 

But it could happen!  We serve a BIG God.  It’s all in His capable hands and we’re resting in His timing.
