So many have asked about our journey to our girl.
After Grace went to be with Jesus, we went into prayer and fasting asking God,
what do you want us to do?
He kept over and over saying “Continue to move forward, I got this”.
So we did, we moved forward, waiting on God to show us.
One day while watching Luke at his school play, I let my mind wonder, but we won’t tell him that.
I felt God placing upon my heart a very specific name for a girl. (God ,knows exactly how to get my attention, names and numbers)
I loved the name, it is so pretty. So I tucked it away into my heart for later maybe.
Fast forward two days…I get an instant message from director of the baby home, she says we have a little girl her name is (L)…ummm wait!! what did you say????
It was the same name God gave me just two days earlier.
Ummmm….ok….can you give me more info on her. She does tell me her age at that moment…and we are not approved for that age…so I know I have to call the USCIS office to see how hard it would be to change this.
The director states she will be right back. In the mean time I start praying like crazy asking God is this her..are you sure?? I mean I need another sign (thank God He loves me, because I can drive Him crazy I am sure with all my request).
I said God you know I need something else…as if her name wasn’t enough. I say..ok if this is her then when I call the USCIS office to see if I can change our age range..either way it will be my answer as to what you want us to do. I call and the women on the phone states..It will be NO problem.
Ok God I get it, BUT…can you give me one more sign…the thing that will seal it for me..(I am sure he is rolling His eyes just about at that time).
You see for the last two years I keep seeing the # 10 20..every where..in address, times on the clock etc…but figuring its my birthday and all 10/20 that is more then likely why..
So she comes back on the phone I tell her that USCIS says it’s no problem etc.
She says…wait for it,,,,, wait for it…her birthday is 10/20..
BAM!!!!!…here’s your sign.
So needless to say, we said YES!!!!
Now here we are, that was over two months ago.
We are beyond excited to bring our girl home.
There are still some mountains like finances, and a signature…but we are almost there.
We are waiting on one signature to arrive and we can submit to court, then get our date….as of this morning we are hoping that paperwork get’s there this week.
We still have quite a bit of money to raise…I hate putting all our stuff out there
but it is $5500.00. This is to pay the remainder of our attorney fee’s and in country fee’ s and travel while there.
God has shown us such favor in finances so far..but at the same time through
people in our lives He has told them that we need to be still and wait on Him for these finances He will make it happen stop with new fundraisers.
Well this girl has a VERY hard time doing that.
I feel I need to fund-raise…if I don’t then HOW will we get all this money.
I am taking what has been told and being still, plus I truly believe everyone
is so sick of hearing that I have another fundraiser, they are starting to de-friend me…lol
God has given me my little Etsy shop to help with raising the money.
I am so blessed by the orders that I have been getting…we are getting one step
closer to our girl…one cuff at a time.
We still have our puzzle fundraiser going on here.
I don’t know how we will raise the remainder $5500.00, I do know that I
need to wait on Him to direct me on if He wants us to do another fundraiser or not.
Right now He is saying, BE STILL!
Please pray with us that the remainder comes in soon, so we can go, when we get the court date..which we hope is coming in the next week or so.
Mothers Day is right around the corners as well, so head on over to my little store here.
