Just as we were all starting to come off of the sugar high and take down our decorations I want to wish you a Merry Christmas. January 7th is Christmas is Ethiopia. Today I wonder how our little Jude will celebrate. Has he heard the name of our Lord? I look forward to next Christmas when we can all be together as a family. There are so many things that I dream about doing with Jude; but really high up on my list is taking him to church, especially the Christmas Eve service. It was always such a special time for me as a child and can't wait to experience it with our son.
We received our January waiting list numbers. Not a whole lot of movement, but still loving the peace that God is giving us about His timeline.

Though the sibling list goes down each month that is because there are families like us that are on both lists, but have accepted a referral for a single child. Therefore they are removed from both lists. Siblings groups are not very common (especially under 5 years). We would love to adopt siblings though, only God's timing will tell.
