Tears. I am in tears, y’all. Last post we humbled ourselves and asked for help. We needed to raise $5,500 in a very short amount of time to pay an orphanage fee for our adoption. After just three short days we were gifted all the money we needed to pay the orphanage fee. In just three days our needs were met and then some! More tears.
Every gift has left us on our knees praising God. Five dollars from a stranger, one hundred dollars from a family member, a thousand dollars from a friend…each amount, each generous gift has impacted my heart in a way I have never experienced before. I feel so unworthy to receive such an outpouring of love. In awe. That is where this step in our adoption journey has left me. I am just in awe of the kindness shown to us.
I wish I could sit down with each of you who shared our story, who prayed for us, who generously gave, and express our gratitude in person. I sincerely want you to know how truly grateful we are. We are so thankful for your support, for your help. We literally did not have the funds to make that payment and the Lord provided through you. Thank you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
Many have asked us if we still need help. That blows my mind. People going above and beyond what we asked leaves me speechless. Here is my answer to that question. We paid the orphanage fee in full, but we do have other adoption expenses coming. If you feel led to help you can rest assured that there is still a need. We have left our YouCaring page active to allow people the opportunity to donate that way. Thank you for giving to help us bring our daughter home. And thank you for even considering to give.
We are in awe of the great thing God has done here. We give Him all the praise.
