Unexpected Blessings

April 3, 2010

This letter came in the mail today and it rocked us.

Some friends of some friends that we met a few times a couple of years ago heard of our adoption plans and decided to share a $1,000 with us to put towards our adoption!

Their two page letter was so sweet, thoughtful, and timely!

We owe $4,500 next week to our adoption agency. As of this morning we had $3,350 of that raised.

We now have $4,350 to mail in on Monday!

My friend JB says often, “God is rarely early, but never late.”

WOW! This rings so true in our ears and hearts today as Ashleigh and I cried in our dining room holding a letter and a gift.

Everyone should adoption, just to experience the amazing adventure!

(I would also like to add, this family has awesome stationary!)

    Thanks be to God! I know that must have been encouraging.
    This post encourages me today as I struggle with having complete faith in God providing for our child-to-be and family as we adopt. It is so hard to always operate in complete faith, but when we do, you are right – the blessings are out-of-this-world!

      It was so encouraging today, and I am so thankful that it has strengthened you all in the midst of your adventure.

      Some days this process just seems just too BIG, then when I get a glimpse of God working, the only thing that seems to BIG is my lack of faith!
