So Close.

I'm in awe of where we're at in regards to the finances of this adoption. I know that God is in charge of all things and I really didn't doubt that He would provide but being a planner and really liking to know where it will come from this has been a HUGE time of growth for me.

I've had to surrender *my* plans and *my* time line to His time line. His design. I've had moments of wanting to do this or that and the Lord says just wait. Just let me. Waiting for His go ahead and His timing. It's a learning process. He has blessed above and beyond as we've waited for His direction. His ways are far higher then mine. I'm but a girl who must learn the same lesson over and over. Patience.

We're in the home stretch of the dossier fund raising, it seems like the last little bit takes the longest, I'm convinced the Lord does that to challenge me and check my heart. We're $800 from our needed $4500. Our dossier is just about ready, we're waiting on a few last pieces of paper and we'll be ready to submit all of the paperwork to be on the wait list.

No, that doesn't mean we are done fund raising. Our King is faithful and His timing is perfect. He'll provide all of the funds in His perfect time.

We are so thankful for each of you. Your faithful prayers, support, and love. Watching the Lord use His people to help bring our daughter home is incredible.

In that day you will say:
Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name;
make known among the nations what he has done,
and proclaim that his name is exalted. Isaiah 12:4
