"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

NOVEMBER NUMBERS ARE IN!



Well, our new number for November is.......
31 !!!!!!!!!!!!!
We are excited! That means we moved 11 spots in ONE month! Wow! We are hoping and praying that we have a referral of a baby girl by April! We will see. Here is a picture of the 31 that the kids did and if you can't tell that that is a 3 and a 1, then here is another one made from beads that will go in Abby's hair! This month, we are waiting to get our fingerprints, AGAIN, up in Portland at the CIS office. We should be doing that within the next 2 weeks after we get our appt. This allows us to get the form to bring an orphan into this country, a favorable determination letter is what it is called.
So glad our numbers jumped so much! We are excited-it is getting more real every month!

  3. Hello Stutzman family,
    It is so exciting to have new numbers and to watch that list get smaller and smaller. What a beautiful family you have...and I can just picture that little Ethiopian princess right in the middle of all of it. This is such an awesome journey!! Maybe we will be traveling together on 2010:)

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
