Number 16!!!

Well, we got the news today that our agency received our dossier and we are officially on the waiting list for a referral!! That is a huge relief to know we are finally here. There was one snag with some paperwork we have to send back to Tallahassee and on to the consulate to be authenticated but they are still putting us on the waiting list while we take care of that. I received an email from our contact at the agency tonight that says we are number 16 on the waiting list!! That doesn't sound so bad but it all depends on how quickly they receive referrals at this point. I am anxious yet at peace because I know that God is working all of this out according to His plan. He has a daughter waiting for us and He will be with her and us as we wait. And wait. And wait.

Dean found this great song by Third Day on their Christmas album and it has become very meaningful to us this year. Here is the first verse:

Merry Christmas

There's a little girl trembling on a cold December morn.
Crying for momma's arms
At an orphanage just outside a little China town
Where the forgotten are.
But half a world away
I hang your stocking by the fire
And dream about the day when I can finally call you mine.
It's Christmas time and you're not home.
Your family is here and yet you're somewhere else alone.
So tonight I pray that God will come and hold you in His arms
And tell you from my heart "Merry Christmas".
