We started this journey in June by asking a few family and friends to pray for us as we sought God's plan. That same week we got our first donation to our adoption fund . . . a sacrificial gift from dear friends that God used to confirm and encourage our hearts that we were walking in His will.
So here we are. 5 months later. And we're blown away with the generosity that has been shown from family, friends and even
And then there are the cards we receive with a check inside. I can't tell you how humbling it is to open one of those. Rest assured that we praise our Father for every gift received . . . to Him be the glory.
We opened one such letter today. We don't know this family, but they gave generously and are praying for our sweet Easton.
After thanking Jesus, I went to record the gift in my spreadsheet . . . cause you know I have a spreadsheet for everything! I realized that this gift brought us to a huge milestone . . .
We have $15,000 for our adoption!!!
Again, to God alone be the glory! This is the amount we needed for the first part of this process. We've actually already had to spend half of that, with the other half due in the next few months. Praise God for providing ALL we need right now.
Thanks to everyone who has prayed, given, sported our t-shirt, donated for a raffle, and loved us like the Church is designed to love! Our cup overflows!
