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!
