We were expecting that maybe, just maybe, several months from now we would have enough to pay the first fee of $4,200...God knew differently.
We were expecting that we would have to use a big chunk of our tax refund to complete the first fee...God knew differently.
To date we have paid almost $8,000 in expenses. We now also have almost $5,000 available to pay the next fee of $6,000. That leaves only $1,000 plus travel expenses (which we think will be around $5,000).
Once again I am blown away by God. Blown away that a bank account that said $0 has turned into this. If we had waited until we had the money to adopt we honestly probably would have never started. We stepped out in faith, and this faith has taken us to amazing places. To God be the glory!
God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.
Ephesians 3:20-21 (The Message)
