Lord, give me patience and give it to me NOW. : )
So, Lesley (our agency's Ethiopia program director) delivered as promised and, today, our number is.......
He is good...always! His timing is perfect for my family, the exact same way that it was for the families who received referrals in April. (Be sure and remind me I said this the next time I'm belly aching about being tired of waiting).
Edited (5/10/12) to add: Our agency has a FB page and, following the monthly updates, several families posted their new wait numbers as well as what age/gender child they were approved for. Not all families are on the page so this isn't completely accurate but, of the families who responded, there were seven families with numbers SMALLER than ours who are NOT in our same age/gender "category".....so, what this means is that 1.) I'm not very successful with my patient waiting; and 2.) taking this into consideration, we are AT LEAST #14.
