This incredible journey has been one in which God has extended grace beyond measure to us. It has been much more than God bringing an orphan child into a family that had room to spare. It has been God teaching us DAILY to walk in faith in very tangible ways. As we have wound down to what we feel is the latter stages of the adoption process, we have been waiting and watching God to provide the last portion of finances and orchestrate the paperwork. So imagine how incredibly inconvenient it was for us when I realized that I would need to walk away from a job that I loved. What terrible timing! God called me to obey Him by standing for truth and following principles of scripture and conscience, but I was left asking the question, "What now!?!"
God anticipated that question long before I asked it and prepared a response that would teach us to walk a little closer to Him. The gap to reach our financial goal was $5500. Yes, you read that correctly: was. In an incredible act of selflessness, a family who we have never met bridged the gap for us. An adoptive family themselves, they have been praying for our family and Kristina for some time and now have blessed with this incredible gift. We are speechless and praise God for providing a way in the absence of what I thought would be our provision. Once again, He is showing us that this act of mercy toward an orphan child will be to glorify Him and Him alone. Praise God with us for His faithfulness!!!
And what does the LORD require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God
