On the Waiting List!! Take a Guess…

Well friends, the paper work phase is officially complete!  We actually did it.  We made it on the waiting list.  Whew.  Basically we’ve got a number in two lines (the girl list and sibling list) and which ever one becomes available first will be the referral of OUR Child!

So… because from here on out its going to be a lot of waiting, we thought we’d make this milestone a little fun.  Mark and I look for any excuse to throw a little creativity in the mix, and this was actually Mark’s idea.  We wanted to do something that we could physically “count down”, and visually see the children ahead of ours finding their forever families.  So we painted kids.  Lots and Lots and Lots of Kids.  Each one unique, no two the same.  You know, once I got over the initial overwhelming feeling. .. “We’re actually going to hand paint ___ children!!  What are we thinking!” I really enjoyed myself.  It was a chance to see the reality in how many lives will be changed, before ours does.

So here’s the deal: leave a comment below and guess what you think our waiting list numbers are based on the picture above (how many kids is each jar).  We’ll send one of our t-shirts or bags (your preference) to the person who guesses the closest on either list! Let the guessing begin, in a couple days we’ll reveal the actual numbers.

Thanks for being on this journey with us!

-Rachel and Mark
