December numbers

I haven't been blogging much at all b/c my blog always locks up. It seems silly to spend lots of time on it if nobody can read it. Our December numbers are: 53 for a girl and 32 for a boy. Even though the boy numbers are so much smaller, they are certainly moving WAY slower.

November numbers

LOTS of movement this month. Yippee!! I do expect things to slow down as many families need to go through their court process. Lots for the courts to catch up on after being closed for 2 months. Hoping the referrals keep coming. Fun and exciting to see so many kids being matched with their forever families! :)

There was a mistake in the numbers from our agency. A mistake in our favor. :) Our October numbers are 66 for girl and 44 for boy.

October numbers!

We are at number 68 for a girl and number 46 for a boy. Glad to see some movement. :) Also was told that the current wait time is 10 months. Of course that can always change, but that sounds so much nicer than 12-18 months. :)

What's going on in the construction world?

I haven't updated in a long time. Not much to report. Soon we will have our October numbers and there has been some movement. :) Yesterday was a good day in our construction world. The ceiling has been sheet rocked and the insulation has been blown in. Boy am I learning a lot. It looked like a gigantic Build-a-Bear workshop in our yard over the weekend. I got the windows primed. The siding is pre-primed so we won't worry about painting until next summer. Jason needs to put in some nails on the outside and then it will be 100% ready for winter. It is fun to see progress. It is hard to get stuff done with Jason being gone so much, but it is coming along.

September numbers

Since we are adding a bedroom onto our house, I thought it was fitting to use some of the tools that are lying around to "construct" our numbers for September. We are 50 for a boy and 76 for a girl. Not much movement with the courts being closed. We are thankful that we are at the top end with not much movement. How hard it must be for those in the single digits to not see much movement. Hopefully soon there will be lots of referrals.

Blogging trouble

I have had lots of trouble with my blog locking up. I'm not sure why now it gets to cranky at me. Just realize this if you look at it and it doesn't seem right and might not be as up to date as I'd like to it be.
