This week has been about recouping and trying to get everyone back on schedule from all of our Christmas fun! We (especially the 2yr old’s of us) were desperately in need of back to “normal”. While we worked to get back to that, we also adjusted to some new normals in our life. 

We received a new case manager for Girl-girl this week, and met her for the first time. I am praying and believing that this is a God ordained change as our previous worker was less than great. Girl-girls case is moving into the next phase and we are excited to finally be here and are looking all the more forward to the future with her! 

Friday night I had an extraordinary experience as I had my first phone conversation with Baby’s bio Mom. She was not only respectful, appreciative and kind she was concerned as a parent always should be for her daughter! When I put Baby on the phone her face lit up and she had a sweet conversation with her Mom. It is our hope and prayer that this family can heal and Baby can go home to Mom eventually. We see the potential there and we are privileged to be a part of the healing process for this broken family. 

This new year is off to a great start and an expectancy for God to use us greatly and to answer prayers we have been speaking to Him for years. 2013 is going to be a great year!
