August Match Update

Total matches for August: 32
Total matches since MCC: 184
Total # of families in front of us: 16

Although the number 16 looks like we would be matched this month, the numbers don't always serve as an accurate determination of when we will be matched....more of a quess. This is because some families could have come in after us that were more open in their decision on what they would accept as far as disability, gender, and age. We are still hopeful that we will be matched really soon.
Thanks to all of you who contributed to the "100 good wishes quilt" for Lily. It is in the process of being put together and quilted right now. I can't wait to see it completed.
Morgan and Mason are back to school and doing well. Morgan loves middle school and Mason is loving 2nd grade. Morgan left for her first overnight trip with the 5th grade class this morning....bright and early!!! We got up at 4:45 and had to be at the school by 5:45. She was so excited.
Morgan has started taking dance (ballet, hip hop, and sacred). She had her first class yesterday and seems to really like it. She is also going to be playing volleyball. Mason is playing baseball and taking a tae- kwon- do class at school.
They both ask about Lily all the time and can't wait to bring her home. Having a name for the child that we have not met yet really helps with bonding with the kids as well as Fred and I. We talk about her as though we have already met her. She has been growing in our hearts for 3 years now. Know wonder we feel like we already know her.
