Movin’ Along

Even though the courts are currently closed in Ethiopia, we did see a little movement on the waiting list this month.. (“small-little-personal-dance-party”)! 57 down from 61, and 23 down from 24… we’re getting so close to the teens on the sibling list I can taste it!! I ran a few numbers this morning to see roughly what our average movement has been this year: 5.4 (G) / 2.4 (S) … it doesn’t do me any good because I end up feeling like its going to be loooonger when I look at the hard numbers. So scrap the “averages” and just keep praying in the Lord’s timing!

On a side note, we’ve been up to some fun things around the house lately, Mark and my brother have gone “garden NuTZ!” We just finished our raised bed vegetable garden in our back yard (of the fall variety- lettuce, broccoli, strawberries, those sorts of yummies). Right now we’re at an 8′ x 4′ bed, but conversations are already in the works for a full on greenhouse and a Tilapia farm, yes fish farm… I’m not crazy about this idea and hopeful it’s just a pipe dream!! – i’m quite sure thats all it is in fact. i’m cool with horticulture- but aquaculture- seriously folks?! … pictures to come soon on how we built the garden bed- in case any other DIY-ers want to give it a shot, super- super easy.

So- number facts:
