I am still amazed at God's goodness toward us. I was having a really tough day today. It has been a full moth since we have sent the dossier off, and still no referrals. I am not a very patient person, and the wait really takes it toll on me some days. I feel so in love with our boys, even though we do not know them yet. Today I just wanted to cry (which is something I never do).
God continually reminds me that I do not want to rush His timing. He knows perfectly well who are children are, and the right time to bring them home. I want to wait for God's best, but it is just a struggle some times.
This evening we received a call from LifeSong for Orphans that they will be giving us a matching grant of up to $3,000! LifeSong will match, dollar for dollar, any donations they receive toward our adoption. PRAISE THE LORD! If you are interested in learning more about how you can help in this way, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is the first agency that we have heard from after sending out eight different applications back in December. What perfect timing of some good news.
Please continue praying for God's provision for us both spiritually and financially. Also continue to pray for us to be matched with God's best children for our family in His timing.
