Just Waiting

Hello All... 
I wanted to give those of you who are wondering a quick update on our adoption progress.  Every 3 months  our agency gets a list of children who have been released to be matched with a family.  They take the children's information and look at the list of waiting families and try to find the best family for each child (so it's not necessarily in order).
Prior to December we were family #8 on the list and now we are #5.  The next group of kids released to be matched will come in March and we're hoping we will be matched at that time, but it could be June at this point.   That would be sort of disappointing, but we know that God's in control of it all and He knows how and when it's all going to happen, so we'll just wait and see what He does!
Once we're matched, the real waiting will start.  After we accept the match, we will still have to wait another 6+ months before we get to go to Thailand and bring our Little One home.
So now you know!  Have a great week!
Y, Melissa


  1. Thanks for the update. I meant to ask you when I was picking up the kids, but it seems that I'm always forgetting something :) Will be praying for a perfect match - Have you ever thought about twins?
    Just kidding ;)

    Hi Mel,

    Good to see you posting again. Loved the Legoland video. I have been trying to work in a trip down there. It's just SO far, lol. Awesome on the adoption update. I am so excited for your family.
