Inside My Week

Inside my home: a vanilla cinnamon candle is glowing.

Inside my kitchen: are the raspberry muffins I baked.

Inside my book basket: is Bullets In the Washing Machine (Melissa Littles), Seven (Jen Hatmaker), The Connected Child (Karyn B. Purvis, David R. Cross, and Wendy Lyons Sunshine), and too many Food Network magazines.

Inside my playlist: is Kings and Queens by Audio Adrenaline.

Inside my hopes: are many, many referrals for this month! Several AGCI Ethiopian babies have already been matched with their forever families in November, and I pray for many more.

Inside my weekend: is a Christmas get-together with our Ethiopia adoptive family support group on Saturday, and an early Thanksgiving celebration with Colin on Sunday along with getting our Christmas tree and decorating!

Inside my picture: are two plaques Colin made me that represent our waitlist numbers! The girl plaque has 139 Africas (that I took a really long time cutting out by hand!) and the siblings plaque has 63 Africas. Each month when we get our new waitlist numbers, we will be able to take down a few Africas (God willing!) if referrals have gone out and we move down on the lists.



  1. Love the beautiful way you are counting down the waiting list! Hoping for many matches every month.

  2. Love your countdown!! What a cute idea! :) xo

  3. The countdown placques that Colin made are GORGEOUS!!! They are so beautiful and creative! WOW!!!
