The Post I've Been Waiting For!!!!!

Wow! Where do I begin? We have a daughter! A beautiful daughter who will be two this summer. The road to her has been full of twists & turns (which I'm sure will continue). It's funny how when we are open to the Lord's calling, He has a way of changing all of the plans we make.

If you've been reading the blog for some time, you most certainly know that our biggest challenge is financial. And although we have had said challenges it seems at just the right moment He delivers on our behalf. Isn't it amazing? Isn't HE amazing?

Anyway, since finances were our biggest challenge we prayerfully considered completing our adoption independently to save the agency fee. I also quickly realized that many of the adoption connections I had made were from the orphanage where our little darling is located. She immediately caught my eye several months ago & for whatever reason - even though we hadn't planned to adopt from this orphanage - thoughts of her were never far from my mind. Around mid-March I showed my husband the waiting children & he immediately was drawn to the same little sweetie. We immediately began to pursue her adoption & today we got the official approval from the O. Praise God!

We still have many financial obstacles to face, but God has shown His hand at many points on this journey & we move forward in faith believing He will provide what is needed.

So, without further adieu, I'd like to introduce our precious one...


For this child I prayed, and, the Lord has granted me my petition, which I made to Him.
1 Samuel 1:27

Oh...WOW!!! CONGRATULATIONS!! What a beautiful angel she is, and so happy!!! What an awesome day it must be to finally know that she is going to be your daughter. Praying, as always, that the financial obstacles will disappear step by step for both of us, and that our hearts may be at peace, knowing HE WILL find a way!

Congratulations again! She is just the sweetest little thing. She is so so happy and I bet she'll be a little shiny ball of love in your house.

I've never heard a story yet where God didn't provide. Surely, as He has so far, He will provide the money as you need it during the process.
