Over the last 6 1/2 months since we submitted our papers and officially got in line to be matched with our child/children, we have done nothing but move BACKWARDS on "The List". Now, there is nothing official about this list, it is just a list that the families have compiled to help us know where in the wait we are! There is often movement in the wrong direction. A couple of times, families above us opened up their request to a broader age range, therefore joining our list. Other times, families that we did not know about would all of a sudden surface. These families have always been before us in line, we just didn't know about them. The list is enough to make anybody go mad - with the what ifs, and when is it my turns!
For the first time since we became DTE, we have finally moved up in the right direction, not only 1 spot but 2!! SEVEN precious children were referred out this week into 4 beautiful forever families! Two of these families received sibling groups and had previously been occupying spots above us on our sibling list! So...I am SOOO very excited for my dear friends for getting their referrals, but for also moving on out of our way!! :)
Hope the referrals keep up! Hope it will be our turn soon! Until then....please keep us in your prayers!
We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands.
