I have come to realize that at this point in our adoption journey, it is hard to come up with posts for our blog as not a lot is happening in our adoption right now. We are at the waiting stage. Our profiles are out there, and now, we just wait. I was telling Chris this weekend, that in a way it is an odd disconnect. At any time, a birthmom could be looking at our profile, and we would have no idea. We just wait for a call.
It's funny how God works sometimes isn't it? Just when I had been feeling down because I don't have an update and there isn't much going on, He moves. It is actually pretty unbelievable. I had been just talking to God last weekend that I needed another sign to know that this adoption is still where He was leading us. Basically, that it is going somewhere. You would think by now that I would know that if I ask God for Him to show me something in our adoption, He will. Well yeah, I again, didn't really believe he would. On last Wednesday, Chris comes out to greet me in my van when I got home and here is how our conversation went:
Chris: "Hon, you aren't going to believe it!"
Chris: "We got a check from someone anonymously again."
Me: "Unbelievable! You are joking right?"
Chris: "Nope, we just got it in the mail from church."
Me: "Wow, I had totally just been asking God to show me again that He cares, and here He followed through! Again!"
Yep, pretty amazing isn't it? Just when I most need it, God follows through and shows me that He is in this. That He cares more than even Chris and I do.
So I again, don't know if you are on here reading this and if you are the same person/people who sent us money before, but it doesn't really matter. All that matters is that you have been faithful in allowing God to work through you and in turn bless us. I have always told Chris that each person who has committed to supporting us in prayer, or finncially, has helped a little one not only find his/her parents, but also helped a little one know Christ.
Thank you! By the way, I'm sorry this post did not come sooner. I had every intention of doing so, but we left to visit friends over the weekend and I didn't have time to update before we left.
