We were so blessed this weekend with a suprise shower from our church family and friends to celebrate the three new blessings in our life! I thought we were going to a baby fair with the Dillow family, but when I walked in the conference room at the Hilton hotel I saw lots of familiar faces..and no baby fair. What a nice suprise! We received so many things that we are going to need and lots of gift cards to buy diapers!
Words cannot describe how loved and blessed we feel by the people in our life. We have received so much support, encouragement and prayer throughout this whole adoption process. I cannot imagine going through this without our church family, family and friends. God has truly given us way more than we could have dreamed.
In addition to the suprise shower, we have also heard back from two grant agencies this week. CARI granted us $1,000 toward our in-country fees, and the Oath Ministry from a church in Alabama gave us $400. What a blessing. We were also to meet our goal for the Lifesong matching grant, which was $3,000! God assured us that He would take care of this adoption if we would only be obedient, and it is amazing to see Him keep His Word!
The court date is two days away....please keep us in your prayers!
