Allow me to be honest for a moment...

The financial part of adoption has me completely overwhelmed. It's a crazy-big number with lots of zeroes.  And yet, I am confident that God will provide with His holy calling.

But sometimes, deep down in my soul, I question where all of those zeroes are going to come from.

And on those days, God shows up in a BIG way.

Like today, when I found a check in the mail...with zeroes.

Overwhelmed. Absolutely overwhelmed by people being obedient to God's calling to help us in our adoption calling.


Adoption Update: We turned in a HUGE stack of papers last week for our Home Study. They actually sat on the counter for almost a month as we prayed and worried over funds. I finally felt like the Lord was waiting for us to be obedient and take another step of faith by turning in our paperwork. We turned in our paperwork 12-28-2010. Reference letters were sent out the next day from our agency. Today we received a wonderful gift in our mailbox to go toward our Home Study fees. (Which is wonderful because after we finish our Home Study, we are free to apply for grants!) Our first Home Study interview is next week. Say a prayer for us!

Oh goodness . . . yes. Lots of zeros.

We had three churches that made comments about, "We should . . ." on the subject of fund raising and assistance, etc. All empty words. But honestly, if it is his will, then he's going to pave a way. Ours came through a home equity loan. Yes, it's going to take us forever and a day to pay it off, but it's ok. Yes, it would have been such a blessing to do without debt. But our sons are home, mission accomplished.

The rest is just loose ends to tie up! :)

CONGRATULATIONS! It is so neat to see what God is doing in and through you guys- who knew what He had in store to bless you with once you were obedient and stepped out on faith! God's plan is awesome and I can't wait to see what He has in store next. (I saw your tweet and am excited about an update here!)

During our adoption, we saw God's provision and hand more clearly than we have at any point in our lives! Excited that you're heading into this new adventure! Prepare to be amazed on a regular basis!

I have two internationally adopted children. It is a long and exhausting progress...but it worth it. Adoption is a beautiful way to add to a family and you can only do it by following your heart. Your child is where you are drawn to....there is a reason we make our decision to pursue any international or domestic adoption. And whatever that reason is, it is the right one!
