I wish words could describe the feeling of being done. Done with the paper chasing. Done with the wondering if your paperwork is moving. Done with the stressing over whatever step is next. Done with worrying that you filled out a form wrong. And... drum roll please.... done with the adoption funding. YES!! IT'S TRUE!!
It is with a very, VERY grateful heart that I share with you that our financial needs have been met!!
God orchestrated every penny of this adoption! He used crazy saving, fundraisers, a grant, and the generosity of amazing friends who wanted to be part of Ellie's adoption to make it possible. It is done!! Ellie's adoption is paid in full!! :)
I wish I could say that I waited through this adoption never doubting that we would have the funding we needed. But, I can't. If I am perfectly honest, I must admit that a couple of weeks ago when I knew our TA was imminent, I felt like I had 2 ton truck on my chest when I thought about how much money we still needed. I've seen God fund other's adoptions over and over again. Why couldn't I have been sure - sure enough to get that truck off my chest - that He would do it for us? WHAT a faith building journey this adoption has been!! GOD IS SO GOOD!
God funds what he favors. And God favors adoption. Our journey is a testimony to His faithfulness.
Now it is time to concentrate on packing and getting ready to meet my precious girl. Please join me in praying that God would prepare her sweet heart for her adoption. She is in foster care, and it will be so, so hard for her to leave her foster family. Please pray that God will calm her fears and let her feel safe with me.
Thank you all so much. Thank you.
