We got that email. You know the one. It's the one that we once anticipated with great excitement and, at times, great dread. It's the email that tells us where we are on our agency's wait list. It's the email that contains a number that has carried a lot of weight around here at times. Much more weight than it ever deserved.
That number is still TWO. We have been number two since February. That's four months at number two. But who's counting? :)
I no longer anticipate the monthly wait-list update. To be honest, were it not for the Facebook group that I'm a member of, I might not ever realize it's that time. Now, what we anticipate is the phone call and the face(s).
God, forgive us for all of the times that we relied on the number, all the times that we put our faith and trust in the number; for you are the One who set the lonely in our family and whose ultimate plan for it is perfect.
