Brody asked for a piggy bank this month. I asked him why he needed one, and he told me he needed to save money to adopt babies. He does not understand that the adoption process is long so he was ready to take matters into his own hands. He thinks his saving will bring babies home faster. He really wants to be a big brother! Brody is energetic, loud, always into something, and surprisingly very tender hearted. He loves babies! And he has a heart for the orphan!!! So all the coins have now been gathered all over the house to go into his bank, and he is proud of his bank. With all the waiting, Brody's idea for the pig is a big encouragement to me. That pig makes me smile every time I walk past it knowing our whole family is working towards bringing a baby home. Yes, the pig has 8 eyes...would you expect a normal pig from The Brices???
The update- Things are moving in India!!! They allowed 100 families all over the world get a registration number in the month of January....we were one of those families. Whoo hoo!!! Now that we have a registration number, we can follow our process online. According to their new system, once our dossier is sent again but this time with a registration number we will get assigned to an orphanage within 15 days. Hopefully getting a referral for a child at that time or soon after. This is a new system, a new way of doing things, new laws to understand, and it could take longer than what they are planning for. I remain very optimistic. I'm believing we will adopt a baby this year. I'm looking forward to sharing more good news in February. Please pray with us!
