Ten Percent Chance

I'll just jump right in. There still haven't been any changes to our numbers. I'm sure our agency cringes every time the phone rings as many, many families are waiting for a little good news. I certainly wouldn't want to be fielding those calls. However, there is this crazy slight possibility that maybe by some slight chance if the stars all align in the right way, that something could change for us. There is this cutie little kiddo on the waiting kids list that we inquired about the other day. We've had our eye on the little fellow for awhile, but his status changed from special needs to not special needs and the second I heard that, I called. (I know that sounds terrible and if we ended up with a special needs child, then that would be that, but anyway . . . ) Evidently, another family or two called before us and are considering him, but we are on a short list at this point for this little guy. On one hand, I think, I don't want to be doing this just to speed things up, but on the other hand, we said we'd be open to wherever this process leads. So, again, it all comes down to just knowing that God will place the right child into our family. So basically, we could add to our family anywhere between a few months to a few years. For now, we are loving the Christmas season with our family as it stands.
