Another Blow... I've stated before this whole adoption has got to be a God thing because we don't have the necessary funds lying around waiting to be used. Trust me, all funds around here are used promptly to pay bills, buy food and exist. LOL! We are trusting God to meet the financial needs.

We have been blessed by many of you with donations and we thank you so very much! We have been blessed by family and friends as well. At this point, we don't have a need for anything material-wise except for diapers and formula! How God is that?! However, we are still waiting on God to provide this last $10,000! Come on God...rain it down. :)

We have applied for several grants and a no interest loan. Today we received word from one of the grants that they were overwhelmed with needs and can't possibly meet them all so we will not be receiving money from them. It would be a lie if I said I wasn't disappointed and frustrated but ultimately, it's up to God how he meets our needs. I would really, really like for Him to do it MY way but funny, He's not buying into that one. :) So....we wait. There's alot of that going on around here lately!! Maybe He's trying to teach me something.....hmmmm! LOL!

And I think it just goes to show that there are so many people adopting in the same position we are in. We can afford to take care of our children on a daily basis it's the large outlay of money that we don't have. Unfortunately, we've been too busy bringing these precious children home and haven't had the ability to store up money in a savings account. The need is so great...for children to find loving homes....for families wanting to be that loving home but needing the finances...and for us, each of us to do whatever we can to help.

Above all, prayer is the most important thing but don't be afraid to invest in the life of a makes all the difference in this world to him or her and ultimately, to all of us.

Oh girl, I have to remind myself many times that His ways are better than my ways. Praying for His provision for us all to bring our kiddos home.
