The Math is not Working Out.... (edited)

We got the newsletter from the agency yesterday and in it they stated they have had 12 placements since the beginning of the year.  *scratches head*  We only moved up 2 spots from January to March so what's up with all of these other placements?   I could call our SW to find out but it's so much more fun to sit here and speculate until May.  :-?

 **edit** I read past newsletters posted on the agency's site. (yes, I should be working)  In the first half of last year they had 12 placements.  At least this year is starting off better.  I suppose many of these could be designated placements which would explain why the list isn't moving too quickly.
